By Renatha Msungu

Three more regions have confirmed to compete in the National Basketball League (NBL) which will be staged at Dar es Salaam`s Indoor Stadium from October 19-25.
The Tanzania Basketball Federation (TBF) Secretary-General, Lawrence Cheyo, yesterday named them as Lindi, Morogoro and Coast.
He said the turning up of the three had made the number of the regions reach 17.
Cheyo named other regions which had confirmed earlier as hosts Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Mbeya, Mwanza, Iringa, Mara, Dodoma, Tanga, Kigoma, Ruvuma, Kagera, Shinyanga, Rukwa and Kilimanjaro.
He appealed to regions which were yet to confirm to do so immediately.
He said that preparations of the event were in the final stages as they had already got a sponsor.
``We have already got a sponsor. We will soon name him to the public,`` he added.
The event was last year sponsored by Barrick and Tanzania Breweries Limited.
