Ahly, Egypt’s sole representative in the last four of Africa’s blue-riband club competition, earlier demanded “full justice” from CAF, saying the match should be held at a “neutral venue“.

However, CAF announced on Monday that Morocco, whose own representatives Wydad are on the verge of reaching the final, will host the one-off final on 30 May.

The EFA said in a statement that CAF’s decision is in violation of “fair play standards“, adding that it was ready to take legal action to “preserve Ahly’s rights“.
