New Date For Wydad-Chiefs Game

It has emerged that a new date has been set for the re-scheduled CAF Champions League game between Wydad Casablanca and Kaizer Chiefs.

The match was meant to take place this past weekend, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic regulations, the Moroccan government was unwilling to give visas to the South African club.

CAF then agreed for the game to be played at a neutral venue, and they had tried to schedule the game for this coming Friday in Cairo. However Chiefs requested another date as logistically it would have been impossible to get visas and travel to Egypt in time.

It has now been confirmed that all parties have agreed that the game will be played on the 28th of February.

However it has since emerged that Egypt, where they hoped to play the game, will not be able to host on that date.
