After the Egyptian FA rejected the offer to host the group A tie of the CAF Champions league between Wydad Casablanca and Kaiser chiefs, the pan African Football organization has finally made public the new venue and date for the tie.
The two teams were to clash last week in Morocco, but the south African side were not allowed to enter the north African nation due to the COVID-19.
Though, the Moroccan FA had proposed the Al-Salam stadium in Cairo, Egypt as a suitable venue for the game, but the Egyptian FA however rejected the offer. Consequently, CAF declared that, the game will now take place at the 4 August Stadium in Ouagadougu, Burkina Faso.
Meanwhile, CAF also announced the date and venue for the game between CR Belouizdad and Mamelodi Sundowns, which will take place in Tanzania.
