I just looked in FIFA news (februari 197:
28.1 Zambia-Zanzibar (Tanzania) 6-1
29.1 Zambia-Zanzibar 5-0
I consider this an official source, but I do not understand what is the meaning of Zanzibar (Tanzania)... It might have been Zanzibar twice and FIFA mentioned Tanzania because Zanzibar wasn't a member at this time... But I guess we'll have to wait for the Zambia book with the history of their team...but it seems impossible to really get in touch with the author....

I think we must consider these to be Zanzibar matches, and not Tanzania. I don't understand why Zanzibar would be mentioned at all, unless they played the matches. Zanzibar (Tanzania) was probably used for people who didn't know where Zanzibar was (Many people would be too young to remember Zanzibar and Tanganyika being separate).

I read the full article: "Kickin' it: leisure, politics and football in colonial Zanzibar, 1900s-1950s.", but there weren't any results mentioned, only that Zanzibar played Pemba. You can get it online here: http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1G1-20198515.html, but you have to sign up for a free membership, then you have to cancel it, because you have to give credit card details, and if you don't cancel within 7 days, they will take money from your account.

Simba to face Zanzibar Heroes

Simba SC will tomorrow play the Zanzibar national team, Zanzibar Heroes, in a match aimed at raising awareness on the plight of people with albinism.

Simba were initially scheduled to face a select team of professionals playing in the premier league.

Taswa officials confirmed that Simba would play Zanzibar at Uhuru Stadium, but declined to state why the professionals had pulled out of tomorrow's friendly.

However, a representative of the professionals, Boniface Ambani, said they had failed to raise a team following the departure of many players after the Premier League ended last weekend.

The Kenyan international said only four players have not yet left for their respective countries, thus making it impossible to put a team together.

"Many players went home shortly after the Premier League ended. The few of us who have yet to leave are not enough to form a team," disclosed the towering striker.

The players include Mike Katende, Mike Baraza, Bernard Mwalala and Ambani.

The Saturday match would be preceded by a showdown between Taswa FC and Albino United.

According to Ambani, the four internationals would line up for Albino United, having failed to form their own team.

TFF secretary general Fredrick Mwakalebela expressed his appreciation to the Zanzibar team for their readiness to support the writers� move.

Mwakalebela said preparations were almost complete and urged the teams to prepare well.

"Besides reaching our powerful message to the intended society, we want all the teams to thrill fans with entertaining football," he said.

Simba secretary general Mwina Kaduguda said they would use all matches as preparations for the forthcoming Confederation Cup.

"Most of our players are with Taifa Stars, but we promise a good match. These matches will strengthen our team for the international events," he said

Zanzibar Football Association (ZFA) has strongly cricticised organisers of a friendly between Zanzibar Heroes and Simba played at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam last week.

According to ZFA president Ali Fereji Tamim, official protocols were overlooked when the Zanzibar Heroes team travelled to Dar es Salaam.

He said the team actually did not constitute Zanzibar Heroes players but a blend of some of the players and other ad hoc selected ones.

The president had the opinion that some unscrupulous people quickly organised the entourage for their personal gains without officially communicating with ZFA oofficials.

(etc)

Zanzibar's Chief Minister Ally Juma Shamhuna has requested the world soccer body FIFA to recognise the Isles and admit them to the international football family.

Speaking during the launch of the World Cup trophy tour in Zanzibar on Saturday, Shamhuma suggested that the membership emulates a United Kingdom style that involves England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland as independent members of the federation.

"A similar format can be applied here to enable us to compete in the FIFA-sanctioned tournaments as an independent member," Shamhuna was quoted as saying in The Citizen.

Shamhuna added that Zanzibar would not stop fighting for the membership, despite seeing most of their past struggles to do so ending fruitlessly.

"We still hope to succeed one day as we will keep on fighting for the membership," he said.

Shamhuna received the World Cup trophy at Forodhani grounds where thousands of football fans flocked to watch the its maiden tour of the Isles.

Zanzibar Heroes Invited to Yemen And Singapore

Zanzibar — THE national soccer team, Zanzibar Heroes have been invited by Yemen and Singapore for friendlies next year, it was announced here over the weekend.

Zanzibar Football Association (ZFA) President Ali Fereji Tamim told a press conference here that the invitation comes a few days after the team had displayed a good show at the just ended senior Challenge Cup in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

"We take this invitation seriously because our players will be exposed to better skilled teams", he said.

He said that discussions between the association and their counterparts in Singapore and Yemen have started.

"We will inform the public once we have concluded the talks", he added.

Meanwhile, Tamim said that they have not secured a sponsor for the premier league which starts mid next month.

Zantel, the mobile phone company which sponsored the league last seson, has pulled out its financial back up.

In another development, Zanzibar may host an international beach soccer tournament, the first ever event at the region "if all-goes-on-well", the ZFA boss said.

"Zanzibar has been chosen as convenient place because of its good beaches. We have accepted the request," Tamim said adding that FIFA had suggested for the introduction of the new sport here.

He said that, previously Mombasa in Kenya had been suggested to host the tournament but was later dropped.

He said that the ZFA executive commmittee will meet soon to choose the venue.

Beach soccer is common in Europe and America, but still undeveloped in Africa.

This is evidence that Zanzibar remains CAF's associate member.

Also, Zanzibar clubs have separate representation in the African club competitions (as do Réunion), which also shows they have associate membership.

This is because of Zanzibar's unique status. Tanzania sends a united team to national team competitions, including Zanzibar players, but domestically, they have separate leagues. So, Zanzibar can only take part in club competitions.

were Zanzibar member of FIFA ?
at least Zanziber had UN membership


Zanzibar was only independent for about 5 months, which may not have been enough time for it to become a member of FIFA.

British coach lands Zanzibar Heroes job

The Zanzibar Football Association (ZFA) yesterday signed a five-year contract with a British coach, John Stewart Hall, who will train the isles soccer team, Zanzibar Heroes.


Speaking during the signing of the contract, the ZFA chairman, Ali Ferej Tamim, said hired the coach thanks to the Global Scouting Bureau (GSB) who facilitated the deal.


Tamim disclosed that Hall’s salary will be paid by the association in collaboration with GSB.


Tamim said the British tactician will be assisted by two prominent local coaches who are Hemed Morocco and Ali Kidi.


According to him, the new technical staff will officially start their duties after the Zanzibar Premier League reaches its climax at the end of the month.




The ZFA chairman disclosed that the new trainer will be in charge of both junior and senior teams.


“I thank all who facilitated the deal and it’s our pleasure to have hired the first English coach in Zanzibar’s history,” said Tamim.


He said Zanzibar is endowed with super talents, but dearth of exposure and quality trainers have been major limiting factors.


“We’re optimistic that all these problems will be history and hopefully we’ll leave our mark in the forthcoming tournaments,” he said.


Hall said he was happy with his new assignments and he expressed his confidence to take Zanzibar football to the next level.


“I'm very excited to accept the job; I will use my professionalism to ensure that Zanzibar attains rapid soccer development.


"I understand it's a challenging position, but with cooperation from all soccer stakeholders, everything can be achieved,” said the former Birmingham youth academy director.


Before landing the Zanzibar deal, Hall was the head coach of an Indian second division club, Pune FC, which finished runners-up.
