The Prime Minister of Tanzania Kassim Majaliwa has declared before kick-off of the first game of the Under 17 AFCON in Tanzania that entrance to the Stadium will be free from the second Day of the competition.

Speaking on the pitch before the start of the game pitting host Tanzania to 2 times winners Nigeria the minister announced the public is welcomed to the Stadium and entrance will be free and his declaration was received with a huge shout by those who were present in the Stadium.

This comes 24 hours after the players received a huge moral boasting promise from the Serengeti boys Patron Mr Reginald Mengi. It is now on the fans to follow the Serengeti boys to the Stadium and why not follow the AFCON for the next generation of African Football Stars.
