Ligi kuu Bara History
The league’s origins trace back to 1921 in Dar es Salaam, initially with six teams. By the 1930s, it embraced street teams, like Arab Sports (Kariakoo) and New Strong Team (Kisutu), blending Arab and African talents. The Sudanese community introduced a team in 1941, alongside Sikh-exclusive Khalsas and Ilala Staff, comprising Ilala residents. Post-World War II, European players exited, leading clubs like Gymkhana Club, Police Club, King’s African Rifles, and Railways to withdraw, making room for African street teams like Young Africans (Yanga) and Sunderland (formerly Old Boys, later Simba), plus Goan’s Club, manned by Goans, and Agha Khan Club, featuring Ismaili Khojas.
Yanga and Sunderland emerged as Dar es Salaam’s foremost clubs. Yanga, founded in 1938, quickly entered the first division, securing four major cups in 1942. Sunderland followed suit, joining the first division and securing four significant trophies in 1946.
In 1955, the league boasted 38 registered clubs. It evolved into the “National League” by 1965, incorporating most major Tanzanian teams, later becoming the “First Division Soccer League,” and eventually the “Premier League” in 1997. Tanzania Breweries sponsored it, leading to the Tanzania Breweries League (TBL) name, until 2001 when a conflict with the Tanzania Football Association ended the partnership. In 2002, Vodacom took over sponsorship, renewing it in 2009.
