Caf confirm new venues for Sundowns and Chiefs fixtures


The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has confirmed that Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs Champions League fixtures will now be played at neutral venues.

Mamelodi Sundowns will play CR Belouizdad in Tanzania on 28 February at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium, Dar es Salaam.

Meanwhile, Kaizer Chiefs will go head-to-head with Wydad AC in Burkina Faso at 4 August Stadium in Ouagadougou, also on 28 February.

The Brazilians were not able to travel to the North African country after the Algerian FA requested a postponement due to further medical restrictions in Algeria, whilst the Egypt Football Association (EFA) said it would not be able to host Wydad and Chiefs encounter on the new date.

Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) and Burkinabe Football Association (BFA) has sent approval letters to Caf to host the matches.
