Ugandan linesman Dick Okello has been appointed by CAF to officiate at the 2021 CAF Champions League Final.
The final, between Kaizer Chiefs (South Africa) and defending champions Al Ahly (Egypt), will be played at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca, Morocco on 17 July 2021
Dick will be the second assistant referee as the two giants clash in Morocco.
An earlier communication had stated that it will be Okello Lee, but CAF has replaced him with Dick Okello due to “technical reasons.”
Dick will be alongside Pacifique Ndabihawenimana (Burundi) who is the centre referee and Elvis Guy Noupue (Cameroon) as the first assistant referee.
Eric Arnaud Otogo (Gabon) is the fourth official and Allan Konate (Cameroon) is the match commissioner.
This will be Dick Okello’s fourth CAF Champions League match this year, but the biggest of his career.
He officiated at the Zamalek and Esperance Group D match in Cairo, and Group A encounter between Al-Merrikh and Al Ahly at the Stadium Omdurman.
His third game was a Quarterfinal first leg between MC Alger and Wydad Casablanca at the Stade du 5 Juillet.
