Kaizer Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung has re-iterated the historical importance of their CAF Champions League clash against PWD Bamenda on Sunday at the Omnisports Stadium in Limbe Cameroon. The encounter is the first leg of the preliminary round.

This will be Amakhosi’s first-ever trip to Central Africa and their first meeting with Cameroonian opponents in a CAF competition, and the sixth time for Chiefs participating in the CAF Champions League with their first participation dating back to 1993.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the chairman re-iterated the historical importance of the clash and he said: “This is an important journey for us. It’s our first time playing in Cameroon. It happens in our 50th-anniversary milestone.”

“It happens when Cameroon is preparing to host the Africa Cup of Nations. So, we are going out there to fly the South African flag with pride.

“I wish the team a safe journey and victory on Sunday.”

The winner of this round will face Angolan side Primero De Agosto over two legs and the winner of that clash will move onto the group stages with 15 other teams.
