Tanzanian giants Azam FC have confirmed that the renovations at their venue Azam Complex Arena have been completed.
This means that the venue is now ready to host Mainland Premier League matches.
Sports activities on the artificial turf of this Arena were halted for a certain period to pave way for upgrade works.
As a result, the team was compelled to use Uhuru Stadium and the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam for its home matches.
The club’s information officer Thabith Zakaria has now revealed that the arena is now 100 percent fit to host matches when the league resumes, and all their home games will be staged there.
“At last, all the upgrading works on the pitch have been completed such that we are ready to host home games at our own turf,” Zakaria was quoted by Daily News.
“The ongoing rains in the city slightly hampered the whole exercise but now, everything is over.”
He, therefore, urged the team’s fans to be ready to descend on the venue when the league restarts so that they can cheer their team, unlike in the previous matches when they had to travel to either Uhuru Stadium or National Stadium.
Azam are placed second on the table with 54 points from 28 games, 16 points adrift league leaders Simba SC who have collected 71 points.
They last won the Mainland Premier League title in 2014 and since then, they have been chasing the silverware without success.
