The journalist Ahmed Schubert, Al-Ahly goalkeeper and former Egyptian national team, revealed that the first football team in Zamalek club will not play the preliminary round of the African Champions League with the Chad champion in Chad.
Schubert said that at its last meeting the African Union officially refused to approve the stadiums of Chad and gave the Chadian champions until August 20 to determine the alternative stadium in which it will play its matches.
The draw of the African Champions League for the new season has landed Zamalek with Chad’s Elekspor, where the first leg of the preliminary round of the African Champions League will be held away from home on September 9, 10 and 11 next, and the return will be on the 16th, 17th and 18th of the same month at Cairo Stadium.
In the event that Zamalek wins the Chad champions, it will face the winner of the Burundian Flamboe match and the Libyan Al-Ittihad in the 32nd round of the tournament.
Schubert made it clear that it is very possible that the home and away matches will be held in Egypt, and the African Confederation has no objection to this matter if the Chadian champions agree.
