CAIRO, 14 July 2020: Mohamed Fadl, a member of the Football Association's five-year-old committee, announced that they have officially applied to host the remaining CAF Champions League matches.


"We have submitted to host the remainder of the African Champions League matched," Fadl told the OnTime Stadium program on Ontime Sports.

"We got the approval of Egypt’s officials and sent the official letter to the CAF,"


Fadl stressed, "I contacted Abdel Moneim Bah, the Secretary General of CAF, and I told him that if the next Africa Cup of Nations had not been postponed, Egypt was ready to receive it if it was to be held on time."


"We are doing this to help Al Ahly and Zamalek. Morocco will host the Confederation which includes two Moroccan teams also. We have the infrastructure," he stressed.


Fadl thanked Hani Abu Raida, the former head of the Football Association and member of the Executive Committee in CAF, for his role in this file.


Cameroon officially announced on Monday that it will not host the rest of the tournament.


Two Moroccan Egyptian summits are expected in the semi-finals, in September (exact date has not been determined yet), Al-Ahly vs Wydad, and Zamalek, against Rajaa Casablanca.


The CAF is scheduled to issue its final decision regarding the country hosting the Champions League matches in the coming days.
