KVZ face Black Sailors as 2020/2021 Zanzibar Premier League kicks-off
The 2020/2021 Zanzibar Premier League kicks-off this afternoon with two matches on card.
KVZ FC who will lifted the 2019/2021 Zanzibar Cup will open their campaign against new comers Black Sailors FC at the Mau Tse Tung Stadium.
It will be a tall order for the newly promoted Black Sailors facing a more experienced KVZ FC side that has also played several friendly matches during the break.
The match will also help the KVZ FC prepare well ahead of their preliminary match against Sudan’s El Almal in the Total CAF Confederation Cup.
JKU FC will also battle Kipanga FC at the Amaan Stadium in the second Premier League game to take place today. Action will return on Saturday with Chuoni FC taking on Malindi, while Polisi face Mafunzo FC.
Reigning Zanzibar Premier League champions Mlandege FC will play newly promoted Hard Rock SC on Sunday, while Zimamoto FC face KMKM FC on the same day.
Unlike the 2019/2020 season which attracted 16 teams, this year only 12 teams will battle in the League under the newly elected Zanzibar Premier League Board headed by Kassim Mohammed Abdalla.
