The SABC have since confirmed that due to an exclusive deal between SuperSport and CAF, the African football governing body has subsequently rejected their offer to broadcast the match between Kaizer Chiefs and Al Ahly.
The SABC have confirmed that they’ll not be televising Saturday night’s historical CAF Champions League final between Kaizer Chiefs and Egyptian giants Al Ahly according to reports.
