“We are still awaiting the CAF decision about the venue for the CAF Champions League remiaing fixtures. We trust CAF’s decision.” Wahby said.
The CAF Executive Committee announced on Tuesday that CAF Champions League semi-finals will resume in September with a Final Four (4) format, adding that the semi-Final matches will be played in a single match.
