πŸ† 🏟️ How will CAF pick the stadium to host Champions League final?

CAF will carry out a vote to pick the venue for the 2019/2020 CAF Champions League finals and not through an Executive Committee decision as earlier announced.

This year's tournament will break from the past after CAF changed the rules to have a one-off final played at a neutral venue instead of the previous home and away format. 

The change was necessitated by ugly scenes experienced in last year's final that pitted Morocco's Wydad Casablanca and Tunisia's Esperance. The Moroccans protested the way the referees handled the matches and walked out of the second leg in Tunis.

Reports indicate that five stadiums have been earmarked for the Champions League finals. 

Morocco's Mohamed V Complex in Casablanca is a clear favourite but faces tough competition from Rwanda's Amahoro Stadium. CAF delegation led Samuel Eto'o visited Kigali on Sunday to inspect the facility and held a meeting President Paul Kagame over the possibility of hosting the final. 

Other stadiums in contention include Cairo International Stadium, Rades Stadium in Tunis as well as Khartoum's Blue Pearl Stadium.
