Santos progress after Mtibwa withdraw 22/04/04
Santos' Confederation Cup second-leg match against Mtibwa Sugar, which was to be played at Athlone Stadium on Saturday, has been cancelled.

This after the Tanzanian club failed to raise enough funds to make the trip to Cape Town.

The South Africans were only informed late on Wednesday about the unavailability of their opponents.

Santos won 3-0 in Dar-es-Salaam last week in the first-leg and were looking to double the score line in front of their home crowd.

Boebie Schloss, spokesperson for The People's Team, said: "We were going to celebrate 10 years of our country's democracy with our supporters who were going to watch the encounter for free."

He also said that it was going to be another way of thanking their royal fans for their support during hard times.

Schloss said Santos are disappointed because of the cancellation but knows what it is like to be playing in the continental competition without financial backing.

"It can be really tough if in turn the participants themselves have no financial backing. Santos have been there, it is not a smooth road." said Schlos

Santos will go through to the last 16 of the Cup which does not have any financial rewards for any team that participate even for the winners who just get the Cup.
