Al Ahly Calls On EFA to Submit Bid to Host Champions League Final

Alahly, CAF Champions League, Football

Al Ahly SC called on the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) to submit an urgent bid to host the 2022 CAF Champions League final based on the fact that Senegal withdrew their bid to host the game. 

Senegal's withdrawal should have been announced earlier by the CAF in order to show transparency from their side and to allow other countries to submit their bids to host the game.

CAF did not announce the withdrawal of Senegal and chose the same venue to host the game for the second season in a row due to it being the only bid, violating the standards of fair play due to the fact that the decision does not provide equal opportunities for the four semi-finalists and gives one team an advantage of playing the final at home if they reach the final.

Al Ahly was never notified by any party when the national football federations were allowed to submit their bids to host the final. The club also renewed the demand from the EFA to provide the club with a copy of all the letters between EFA and CAF regarding choosing the venue of the CAF Champions League final.

Al Ahly urged the EFA to support the club in this situation and provide the club with all the  requested documents, including the EFA's request to CAF to play the game in a neutral venue. Al Ahly will include all these documents in the appeal to CAS.
