The government has announced the completion of all plans for Yanga's trip to Algeria for the Africa Confederations Cup final against USM Alger.
The second game is scheduled to be played on June 3, 5 at the July 1962, 2 stadium in Algiers after the USMA won 1-<> at the <>-<> Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Sunday.
Government spokesman Gerson Msigwa said that, as promised by President Samia Suluhu Hassan, he had delivered a 262-seater plane to take the team on Thursday and return on July 4 after the match.
"As announced, the President has provided a plane that has a capacity of 262 passengers in its entirety but perhaps guidance will be issued in the future, but President Samia's instructions require that it carry players, leaders and fans to go cheer," said Msigwa.
He said the results of the first match were not good but the government had done its duty to ensure they removed fatigue for the journey where the plane would fly directly to Algiers in five to six hours.
He said the government believes through Yanga that it can bring the championship to the country this season, which is why it is working with them to ensure they achieve their dream.
When he was approached by the Yankees' press officer Ali Never knew about the team's travel plans for the eagerly-anticipated game, his mobile phone rang unanswered.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Sport has offered condolences to the family who lost their loved one, William Ernest, who died in the first game of the final at the Stadium of the country. The ministry also offered condolences to other casualties in the incident.
According to a statement issued by the Ministry, it prays for the deceased to rest in peace and the other injured to recover quickly and return to their nation-building duties.
"We offer our condolences to the bereaved and may God rest the spirit of the deceased in paradise, but we also pray to God that all the injured may recover from their nation-building activities," the ministry read.
