Yanga Group Stage CAF Champions League 2022/2023, Kundi La Yanga CAF 2022, Yanga CAF records, Yanga Sc founded in 1935 is the oldest football Club in Tanzania, boasting arguably the largest fan base in the region of approximately 35 million, and remains one of the few member owned football clubs in East Africa.
The club’s roots can be traced as far back as 1910s, but the officially recognised history of the club started in 1935 when Dar es Salaam residents, who were grouped as Africans by the colonial administration in Tanganyika, decided to form a football club to compete in a league which was full of “non-African” football clubs. The name New Young is said to be the club’s first name. Later it was replaced by the name Dar es Salaam Young Africans SC, and eventually the name changed to Young Africans Sports Club.
After its establishment in 1935, its members squabbled over their team’s poor performance and results. The club had an even poorer and unsatisfactory performance in 1936 that caused some of the members to split and form another team. The proponents of breaking away were Arabs who saw fit to cause conflict among the club members that led to a split.
