Xenia Sports – Cairo
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) is considering transferring the African Super Cup between Al-Ahly, the CAF Champions League champion, and its counterpart, the Confederation’s champion, RS Borkan, to Doha.
The African Super Cup was held in Doha twice, as Moroccan club ED Berkane adheres to holding the match in a neutral stadium.
Sources inside CAF revealed that there is communication by CAF officials with the Qatar Football Association to hold the Super Match there, according to the agreement signed between the two parties two years ago, when Ahmed Ahmed was in charge of CAF, who was recently suspended by FIFA.
The Confederation of African Football will decide, in the coming days, the date and place of the African Super Cup, as it is expected to be held at the end of next January, instead of December 18.
The Moroccan club, RS Berkane, objected to CAF’s previous decision to hold a super match, as for Al-Ahly, at its stadium in Cairo.
CAF had previously agreed with the Qatar Football Association to hold the tournament for a period of three years in Doha, of which two matches were played, the first of which was won by Moroccan Raja Casablanca over Tunisia’s Esperance in the 2019 edition, and then Zamalek also crowned the title at the expense of Esperance in the 2020 edition.
