Yanga Hit With Another Major Blow After CAFCL Exit

Less than a week after being knocked out of the CAF Champions League by Mamelodi Sundowns, Young Africans SC have been banned from making transfers after breaking FIFA regulations.

Yanga lost their CAFCL quarter-final against Masandawana 3-2 on penalties after the tie ended goalless over 180 minutes.

However, the Tanzanian giants did lodge an official protest with CAF over the alleged goal of Stephane Aziz Ki, which wasn’t given by Mauritanian official Dahane Beida and also not overruled by VAR.

Yanga have now suffered a new blow after receiving a FIFA ban over irregularities with their player registration. The ban has also been enforced by the Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF).

“The Young Africans club in the NBC Premier League has been banned from registering for violating the rules of International Football Federation (FIFA),” read a statement by the TFF.

“The decision has been made by FIFA after the club violated Annex 3 of the Regulation on the Transfer of Players (RSTP) of the Federation.

“Among other issues, Young Africans did not enter the transfer payment confirmation of the player concerned in the Registration System (TMS), despite being reminded to do so.

“The club has been required to implement the statutory requirements, and submit information to the Secretariat

“The FIFA Disciplinary Committee where the matter has been referred for further action.

“Due to FIFA’s decision, the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) has also banned the club from registering local players.”
