CAF Champions League Final To Be Played in Morocco

Confederation of African Football (CAF) has zeroed down on Morocco as the host for this year’s CAF Champions League final, it’s official.

The final will be played on May 30 2022 in Morocco, but a venue is yet to be revealed.

“CAF received a bid from the Senegalese Football Federation and from the Royal Moroccan Football Federation to host the final of the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League 2022,” reads a statement from CAF.

“The Senegalese Football Federation subsequently withdrew their bid.

“CAF is therefore pleased to award the hosting of the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League 2022 Final to Morocco.”

CAF is also discussing to revert to the old two-legged home and away final to determine the winner of the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League, rather than the one-leg final.

It is also strong to note that the last CAF Champions League final was played in Morocco, at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca.

Al Ahly beat ES Setif 4-0 while Wydad edged Petro De Luanda in the first leg of the semis.
