CAF Eyeing Champions League Return In July Or September


The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has proposed two different dates to resume the closing stages of both the 2019-20 African Champions League and Confederation Cup.


A leaked document has revealed that Caf is targeting two scenarios, with the return to action either starting in late July/early August or in September. Both competitions should have been finished in May but the semi-final stages were postponed in April as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.



In the first scenario, the first legs of the semi-finals would take place between 31 July-2 August with the second legs the following weekend.


The Confederation Cup final would then be played on 23 August, with the Champions League final taking place five days later.


The second scenario earmarks a return for the semi-finals on 4-6 and 11-13 September, meaning the Confederation Cup final would be on 23 September and the Champions League showpiece on 25 September.
