False information![edit]

The following information is absolutely false: "But it is a member of the CAF so it can take a part in the Africa Cup of Nations". I'm not even sure that Zanzibar is actually a member of CAF, I'm currently doing some research about this, but if it was, or actually is, it would only be an associate member, just like Réunion island, and not a full member, and only full members can participate to the Africa Cup of Nations. Zanzibar is for a fact a full member of one of the 5 sub-federations of Africa, the CECAFA, and can participate to the local competition, the CECAFA Championship, but has never and for the moment will never be able, like Réunion, to play the Africa Cup of Nations qualification. You may check again, if you want, but I'm 99.9% certain of this... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 113.165.157.87 (talk) 08:31, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Erratum[edit]

Well, apparently Zanzibar is indeed a member of CAF, and a full member even, but still cannot participate in the Africa Cup of Nations. Sources: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/africa/4330361.stm, "http://www.zanzinet.org/matukio2004.html" From other sources Zanzibar is only an associate member so back to why I indicated in the precedent article: http://www.worldsoccer.com/uncategorized/zanzibars-cup-aim-by-steve-menary Rafa1985 (talk) 08:44, 1 March 2013 (UTC)Rafa1985

Confederation of African Football article has them as Associate Member. Your sources are BBC and worldsoccer. I checked www.cafonline.com, I can say Zanzibar is not there at all. Not on "Associations" menu on top, also not in "Zones" list which link can be found at least from bottom of the page. But Reunion surely is there. 82.141.67.203 (talk) 04:02, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

First International[edit]

RSSSF has Zanzibar playing in international matches in 1947 and 1948. Both of these are before the currently listed "first international". I'm going to go ahead and update this. Paulkman (talk) 16:57, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
