CAF Champions League meeting set to be moved

The Egyptian FA has recommended that the CAF Champions League meeting between Zamalek and Al Ahly is moved amid security fears.

The two Egyptian clubs are due to meet in the continental competition on July 21, with the tie having originally been scheduled to be played in Cairo.

However, as political instability in the country continues and with armed protestors taking to the streets, the country’s FA has now proposed switching the tie to El Gouna.

Reports suggest that the change has yet to be approved by the Confederation of African Football (CAF). However, Zamalek confirmed on their official website that they are now preparing to make the journey to El Gouna on Thursday ahead of the fixture.

Coach Osama Nabih added that the move was a “very difficult” decision, but “the perfect choice at the moment”.

Zamalek and defending champions Al Ahly are both in Group A of the competition, along with AC Leopards of Congo and South African side Orlando Pirates.
