Wydad Finally Get Venue For Chiefs Clash

A venue has finally been found to host the CAF Champions League group match between Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca and Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs.

After going back and forth over a new date, reports coming out of Morocco is that the game will now be played in Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso on February 28.

The game had been confirmed to take place on the same date in Cairo, but the Egyptian Football Association released a statement apologizing that they would be unable to host the group C clash.

Initially this game was meant to be played on February 13 in Casablanca, but Chiefs were denied visas as the Royal Moroccan Football Federation expressed concerns over COVID-19 restrictions.

It was then suggested that the game be played on February 19, though Amakhosi went back to CAF raising concerns over getting visas on time and travelling logistics.

When the Egyptian Football Association came out to say that they would not be able to host the game, CAF told Wydad that they needed to have a venue confirmed by Sunday, February 21, or forfeit the game and accept a 2-0 defeat.

But now Burkina Faso has been confirmed as the country to host the clash.
