Simba Sports Club Photo, Results, Images & Official Website

Simba Sports Club is a Tanzanian football club based in Dar es Salaam. Their home games are played at two stadiums, Uhuru Stadium and National Stadium. Simba SC is one of the two biggest football clubs in Tanzania, their arch-rivals being the Young Africans. Lion cubs often have a dillema of which club to support. The club had several names during its history. When it was founded in 1936, the Club was called Red, it was later changed to Eagles and Dar Sunderland, and in 1971 changed to its current name, Simba

The highest level of success that Simba SC achieved was getting to the final of the CAF Cup in 1993, when they lost to Stella Club of Côte d'Ivoire. It was the highest achievement on continental competitions reached by any Tanzanian team. One of the most memorable years for the club was 2003 when it knocked off the then-reigning CAF champions Zamalek of Egypt on their way to qualify for the group stages of the CAF Champions League. In the first round of that year's competition, Simba SC eliminated Santos of South Africa.
