Caf to rule on Wydad and Chiefs postponed match


The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has confirmed the postponement of the Caf Champions League encounter between Wydad Casablanca and Kaizer Chiefs.

This comes after Amakhosi were denied visas to enter the North African country following the travelling restrictions imposed by the Moroccan Ministry of Health for travellers from South Africa due to an increase in COVID-19 cases.

Chiefs were scheduled to face Wydad in their first group match of the 2021 Caf Champions League on Saturday, 13 February 2021.

The South African Football Association (Safa) have acknowledged they have received a letter from Caf confirming that they will issue out an update on Chiefs versus Wydad Caf Champions League fate.

A Safa statement read: “In a one-liner correspondence sent to Safa last night, Caf, through its competition division manager Ahmed Salem said Caf will communicate the updated decision in due time.”
