Royal Moroccan Football Federation gave explanations about the ban off Dstv Premiership side Kaizer Chiefs to enter the country ahead of their CAF Champions clash to Wydad Athletic Club.
Chiefs were set to jet off in Casablanca ahead of their Wydad game on Saturday, February 13 but they were denied visas although they have fulfilled all needed applications.
And RMFF have come to clarify things.
“The Royal Moroccan Football Federation sent a letter to the CAF Clubs Committee informing it that the Moroccan authorities decided not to allow the Wydad Casablanca match with the South African Kaizer Chiefs team to be held on February 13th in Casablanca for the first round of the African Champions League, due to health and safety related to the recent developments of Covid-19,” read a statement from the RMFF.
“The Royal Moroccan Football Federation called on the Confederation of African Football to postpone the match, or hold it in another country if this is not possible.”
