CAF Revises Calendar for Interclub Competitions

The emergency committee of the Confederation of African Football, CAF, has approved the revised calendar for the interclub competitions which was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to the committee, semifinal matches of the Confederation Cup will come up on the 22nd of next month in Morocco while the final match will be played at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium, Rabat, Morocco five days later.

All matches will be played behind closed doors.

On the CAF Champions League, the committee decided that following the withdrawal of Cameroon Football Federation from hosting the final four of the competition, and in line with the principle of fairness, the committee decided against hosting a final four in either Egypt or Morocco, whose representatives constitute the semi-finalists, which are Al Ahly & Zamalek both from (Egypt) and Raja Club Athletic & Wydad Athletic Club from (Morocco).

To this end, the semi-final matches will be played on home and away basis, with the first leg matches to be played on 25th & 26th of next month in Morocco, while the second leg matches will be played on 2nd & 3rd October in Egypt.

Also, in the principle of fairness, the final will be played at a neutral venue in the event a team from Egypt and Morocco qualify from the semifinal.
