Young Africans Sports Club, also known as Yanga, is a Tanzanian football club headquartered in Dar es Salaam’s Jangwani neighborhood. The club, founded in 1935, plays its home games at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium.
The team, also known as “Yanga” (Young Boys), has won 28 league titles and a number of domestic cups, and has competed in many CAF Champions League seasons. Five times they have won the CECAFA Club Championship.
The club’s origins can be traced back to the 1910s, but the club’s official history began in 1935 when Dar es Salaam residents, who were classified as Africans by the colonial administration in Tanganyika, decided to form a football club to compete in a league dominated by “non-African” football clubs. According to reports, New Young is the club’s first name. Later, the name was changed to Dar es Salaam Young Africans SC, and subsequently to Young Africans Sports Club.

After its formation in 1935, its members argued over the poor performance and outcomes of their squad. In 1936, the club’s performance was even less than ideal, prompting some of its members to join a new squad. The proponents of secession were Arabs who thought fit to sow discord among club members, resulting in a split. Together with dissidents, they established a club known as Queens F.C. (currently Simba). Young Africans and Simba have been rivals since that time. The teams provide the most interesting matchup in the Sub-Saharan area, one of the five most often discussed derbies in African football.
On May 27, the club’s members voted to modify the club’s governing structure to permit private investments from other firms.
The club grew to represent the anti-colonial movement. The association of young Africans with nationalists and independence warriors prompted the political party TANU to select yellow and green as its major colors. The club is now through a procedure that will retain 49% of club ownership for investors and 51% for club members.
The team has a long-standing rivalry with Simba, with whom it competes in the Dar es Salaam (also known as Kariakoo) derby. The rivalry rated fifth among the most renowned African derbies.
