The Egyptian Football Association ‘EFA’ announced that the CAF Champions League encounter between Al Ahly and Bidvest Wits will be played at El-Salam Stadium with the presence of 5,000 fans.

The Red Devils will be hosting South African outfit Bidvest Wits on March 11 in the round of 32 before travelling for the second leg, which is set to be held between 17 and 19 March.

“Things are a bit hard when it comes to opening gates to fans because of security measures,” said Tharwat Selim, the EFA’s executive director to ON Sport TV channel. “I’d like to thank the ministry of interior for accepting our request.”

Selim assured that great efforts were made to allow fans in El-Salam Stadium especially after CAF approved this stadium.

CAF also announced that Morocco’s Redouane Jiyed will officiate for Al Ahly clash against South Africa’s Bidvest Wits.

In addition to being a hardcore football fan, Abdelrahman is a communications enthusiast who works in marketing, advertising, content creation and PR.
