Zamalek opponents in the CAF Champions League final Mamelodi Sundowns are looking for a new training venue for The Whites due to riots.

Zamalek are set to take on Mamelodi Sundown in the Champions League final first leg on Saturday setting their sights on winning the African title for the first time since 2002.

The Cairo giants were set to train at the Tshwane University of Technology sports grounds but the hosts were forced to change their plans due to the presence of protests in the region.

“Yes, it’s true the venue has changed because of the riots, but the club is trying to find an alternative venue to allow them [Zamalek] to train,” Sundowns spokesperson Thulani Thuswa said.

“We will find the best venue as they would do the same to help us when we play in Egypt.”
