The 50,000 capacity Japoma Stadium in Douala, Cameroon will host the first-ever one-off CAF Champions League finals in May, CAF has announced.
The 2019/2020 Champions League final will be the first to be staged in a neutral venue after CAF tweaked its premiere inter-club competition to discard two-legged finals.
Previously, both finalists played one tie each at home with the title going to the winners on aggregate or away goals or penalties in the event of a draw.
This season’s final could be an all Egyptian or an all Moroccan affair after two clubs from both countries made the last four.
Egyptian eight-time record winners Al Ahly will play Moroccan side Wydad Casablanca while Wydad’s neighbours Raja Casablanca will play Ahly’s Egyptian rivals, Zamalek in the last four.
The fixtures will hold on 1 May with the return legs holding a week later.
