Sudanese giants Al-Hilal to compete in Tanzanian Premier League

Sudanese giants Al-Hilal have announced they have received preliminary approval from the Tanzania Football Federation to play in the Tanzanian Premier League.

All football-related activities in Sudan have been suspended since the war broke out in April 2023, leading the last season and the current one of the Sudanese Premier League to be called off.

As a result, several Sudanese clubs have requested to play in leagues of neighboring countries, with the country’s biggest club Al-Hilal seeking to participate in the Tanzanian Premier League.

According to a statement from Al-Hilal, the Tanzanian Football Federation gave preliminary approval, pending the adjustment of the rules and regulations.

It has been reported that Al-Hilal will normally compete in the league title; however, won’t be able to play for the title or the continental spots.

It’s worth noting that Al-Hilal took the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam as home turf during the current CAF Champions League campaign before being eliminated in the group stages.
