Morocco will host this season’s CAF Champions league final, the continent’s football governing body has announced.
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.
The Senegalese Football Federation subsequently withdrew their bid, hence CAF awarding the hosting of the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League 2022 Final to Morocco.
Moroccan giants, Wydad Casablanca, take a 3-1 first leg win over Angolan side Petro Atletico back home for the return leg, while Egypt’s Al Ahly hold a 4-0 first leg advantage over Algeria’s ES Setif in the second semifinal.
The winners of the respective ties will square off in the final on 30 May 2022.
The previous CAF leadership decided on 17 July 2019 that the winner of the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League will be determined by a one-leg final, instead of the usual two-legged, home and away final.
