Yesterday, Al-Ahly of Egypt called on the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to hold the final of the African Champions League, scheduled for May 29, in a neutral country.
The final match was held in the last two editions of the tournament from one confrontation, as Egypt hosted the final in 2020, when Al-Ahly defeated its local rival, Zamalek.
The final was held last year in Morocco, where Al-Ahly defeated the South African Kaizer Chiefs.
Media reports said that CAF intends to hold the final in Morocco this season as well, but the Confederation of African Football has not officially announced anything.
Al-Ahly said on its official website that it had sent a letter to “CAF” requesting that the final of the tournament be held in a neutral country, away from the countries whose clubs qualified for the semi-finals.
He added, “Since (CAF) has not yet announced the host country for the Champions League final, which everyone was waiting to announce at an early date, Al-Ahly demanded that the aforementioned match be held in a neutral stadium.”
