Young African sports club history

People can trace young African FC roots as early as 1910. Like many other football clubs in Africa, the Young Africans sports club started humbly as a community football club in Jangwani Dar es Salaam. Over the years, the club’s popularity grew. It was officially recognized and registered in 1935. When the local community who were categorized as Africans by the British colonial administration decided to officially create a club that will compete with non-Africans football clubs in a well-structured league. The name was given to this football club when the club officially started. It was New Young. But it was later changed to Dar es Salaam Young African SC and finally to the Young African sports club.

Just two years after the club was officially established, things did not go well for the club. The club recorded a poor performance and widespread dissatisfaction among team members and club supporters. That resulted in some of the club members splitting and forming a rival team known as Queens Football Club, popularly known as samba. Since then, these two football teams, Yanga, and Simba have been fierce rivals.

Young African FC and Simba are also among the most successful team in east Africa. And they command a huge fan base. These two teams have the most entertaining clash that attracts a lot of attention both from their die-hard fans across East Africa and also the media. Their clash is among the most talk about derbies in East and Central Africa. It is alleged that Arabs were the main cause for an insurgence in the Young African sports club that led to the split.
