CAF cancels match between Al-Ahly Tripoli and Sudanese host
The match between Al-Ahly Tripoli and its host Hay A-Wadi FC from Sudan has been cancelled, per orders from the CAF, after Al-Ahly refused to play on the grounds of the Halim Shaddad Stadium for its poor condition and facilities.
The game for the first leg of the preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup was supposed to take place on Sunday but Al-Ahly objected to the poor ground of the stadium and submitted a complaint to the African Union in this regard.
The CAF considered postponing the match to Monday, with a view to playing the game in another stadium.
However, after difficulties in finding a suitable alternative, the CAF emergency committee decided to cancel the game and to take the results of the second leg match, which will be played in Benghazi.
