The Tanzania Football Premier League stands as the highest form of professional football competition in mainland Tanzania, renowned for its intense battles and a cohort of highly skilled players.

In the 2023 season, the championship title was fiercely contested, culminating in Young Africans emerging as victors, securing their 29th title. They had an exceptional season, with just two losses and consistently impressive performances, ultimately leading to their victorious claim of the title.

The Tanzania Premier League has experienced a surge in popularity and competitiveness, attracting fervent fans from all corners of the nation. At the end of 2022, the league ranked fifth in the entire continent of Africa for strength of competition, above nations like Nigeria and South Africa.

It serves as a vital platform for local players to showcase their talents and gain recognition within the African football federation.

The story of the 2022/23 season

The battle for the top spot was fierce. It was an exciting title race, with several teams competing for the coveted championship.

Here is a brief analysis of the top three teams in the league:

Young Africans SC

A formidable force within the league, Young Africans SC boasts a rich history and a devoted fan base. Leveraging their skilful players and tactical prowess, they have posed a strong challenge to their rivals.

Simba SC

In recent years, Simba have become the closest challengers to Young Africans. They have a strong squad and have consistently performed well throughout the season. With their attacking prowess and solid defense, Simba SC were a front-runner for the title.

Azam FC

With a well-balanced squad featuring talented players both in defense and offense, Azam FC emerged as another contender for the league title during the 22/23 campaign but fell away towards the end of the season.

Who finished as top scorer in the Tanzania Premier League last season?

Fiston Mayele earned the crown of top scorer last season. His ability to consistently find the back of the net has significantly influenced Young Africans’ performance this season.

The tally of 18 goals went someway to helping secure Young Africans 29th title.

Why Young Africans (Yanga SC) could hold onto their title next season

We dissect some of the strengths that made Young Africans notable title winners in the 22/23 season.

Consistency

Young Africans displayed unwavering consistency by enduring only two losses throughout the season. This demonstrates their ability to consistently perform at a high level.

Solidity in defence

The team’s defensive strength played a significant role in their achievements. Their capacity to restrict opponents’ chances to score resulted in only a small number of goals conceded.

As teams in Tanzania prepare for the upcoming season, they know they will have to be at their best to stop a dominant and entertaining Young Africans side in winning another title. The league starts on August 15th.

It’s all to play for and we’ll be keeping you up to date with everything that occurs during the season.
