Referee For CAFCL Final Revealed

With the CAF Champions League final edging ever closer, who the man in charge of officiating the game will be has been revealed.

Al Ahly On Worst Run In Eight Years 

Al Ahly will be looking to defend their crown as champions of African football when they take on Wydad Casablanca in the final of Africa's premier intercontinental club competition on 30 June.

Pitso Mosimane's men are on the precipice of winning a third consecutive CAFCL title, an unprecedented feat.

The build-up to the match has not come without controversy after it was announced earlier in the month that the final would be played at the Stade Mohammed V, the home ground of Al Ahly's opponents.

The Red Devils have since made several requests for a change of venue, and, more recently, for a European to take charge of the fixture, but it has now been revealed that the man who will be officiate the tie is Victor Gomes.

The South African was the referee for the Africa Cup of Nations final in February, and was lauded for his performance in that match.

This was one of six requests the Red Devils had made to CAF once it was confirmed the final would indeed be held at the home of the Botola Pro 1 league leaders.

The record Champions League winners booked their spot in the final of the competition following a resounding 6-2 aggregate win over Algerian side ES Setif, while Moroccan giants Wydad secured their place in the decider after defeating Petro de Luanda 4-2 over two legs.
