The 'Simba Day,' annual event for this year will be held on the 8th of August 2019 in Dar-Es-salaam and as it seems, some of the participants from the Simba Concerts of Arusha will also travel to the City to take part in the event.
The Arusha Simba Concert will feature soccer matches involving teams from the eight local Simba Branches of Arusha. The eight clubs competed at ground levels and produced four teams to play in the finals at the stadium next weekend.
