CAF postpones Champions League, Confed Cup

 THE Confederation of African Football (CAF) has postponed several continental club games scheduled for this weekend.
The affected matches involve clubs with at least three players involved in the ongoing African Nations Championship. In all, nine Champions League games will be played at a later date while six Confederation Cup matches are also affected.

A statement from CAF says the games will now be played during the last weekend of this month. However, the final of the CHAN, which is taking place in Sudan, will be played the same weekend and this could cause a further delay for some clubs. The CHAN tournament is organised for home-based African footballers.

Meanwhile, the second leg of the Champions League tie between Zamalek of Egypt and Kenya’s Ulinzi Stars in Cairo was put back due to the political unrest in the North African nation. CAF instructed earlier in the week that the match would also be played on the weekend of February 24 to 26.
