Simba sports Club is one of the football giants in Tanzania. It is the only team to have reached the CAF championship final in Tanzania. In 1993 Simba played in the final against Stella Abidjan. In the second leg which decided the winner Simba was defeated by 2-0 in Dar es Salaam. In the finished season the team finished on the 3rd position just below Azam FC who were in the 2nd position.

The team has some potential players. The goal keeper Juma Kaseja is also in the Tanzania national team. Kaseja is a captain for the national side. His contract with Simba has ended and the management was not interested with offering him a new one. That is to say Kaseja now has to look for the other team to play for. Is it proper now for a man like him to try looking for a team in another country? It is possible. As the best goalkeeper for almost 10 years now he is experienced enough to play even in Europe.

Another remarkable player in Simba sports club is Shomari Kapombe. Kapombe plays in the right back. He is a very talented player in that he is not only satisfied with sticking at the defense, but he always go in front to produce some harmful strikes and crosses to the opponents. During the match with Ivory Coast in June 16th 2013, Kapombe drove the ball in the left side and created a very good cross which was then finished perfectly by Thomas Ulimwengu “the Buffalo”.

The main target of Simba FC in the next season will be to fight for the best two positions at the top, since this will give them a chance to play in one of the African Champions at the club level.
