Tanzania: Zanzibar in fresh bid for FIFA membership

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania (PANA) - The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) has formally submitted an application for Zanzibar to become FIFA member, according to the TFF president, Jamal Malinzi.

The archipelago has long hoped to become the 212th member of FIFA but had its previous application rejected by the world’s football governing body in 2005, according to the FIFA media channel.

"Following the admission of Zanzibar into CAF as its 55th member in March, we have officially submitted a fresh application for the archipelago to become a FIFA member," Malinzi wrote on his official twitter account.

The Zanzibar Football Association (ZFA) has already fulfilled a crucial requirement which states that national associations must be affiliated to continental confederations before they can join FIFA, football sources indicated in Dar es Salaam.
