Ahly want to stage CL final in Cairo


Al Ahly have proposed to host Orlando Pirates in the second leg of the Orange Caf Champions League final at the Cairo Stadium instead of Arab Contractors Stadium, the club have said.

Ahly have protested against the decision by authorites to move the game to the Arab Contractors stdium citing the poor condition of the pitch.

Authorities have yet to agree whether the game should be moved to the Cairo stadium but Ahly have claimed stadium officials have given their green light.

Ahly who play Pirates on Saturday in the first leg have been playing all their Champions League matches at Hurghada’s Gouna Stadium this season behind closed doors.

Fans would be allowed to attend the final but it remains unclear if a limited number would be authorised for the game.
