Moroccan side Wydad Casablanca have announced their Caf Champions League group-stage encounter with Kaizer Chiefs will take place at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo, Egypt.
Amakhosi were scheduled to take on the Moroccan side in Casablanca this past weekend but Amakhosi were denied Moroccan visas as a result of the new Covid-19 variant reported in South Africa.
As a result, the match between Chiefs and Wydad was postponed, with the Confederation of African Football (Caf) confirming that the game will be played at a neutral venue.
Wydad have since announced via social media that the group-stage fixture will now take place at Al Ahly’s home ground, the Al-Salam Stadium in Egypt, between 16-20 February subject to final approval.
‘Wydad Athletic administration sincerely thanks Fawzi for the president of the Royal Moroccan Football Association who spared no effort to find a neutral venue that could embrace the match, intensified its contacts, although CAF only gave 24 hours to determine where to take the match,’ the statement read.
‘Wydad also thanks the Egyptian Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Egyptian Federation, who accepted thanks for embracing this match. This is no stranger to the siblings in Egypt with whom we have fraternal relations.’
