Sundays have been reserved for the CAF Confederation Cup and Wednesday for the mid-week games.

CAF General Secretary, Amr Fahmy, said the decision is towards creating a stronger identity for the Club competitions, exposure, marketable and accessible to a wider global audience.

“We strongly believe in having a unique identity for the club competitions and also creating a rendezvous for the fans, a major stakeholder to identify with the two competitions,”Fahmy told CAFonline.com.

“It will also increase the number of matches broadcast by the TV Rights Holders.

“There will be a few exceptions in some special cases since it is a novelty. However, we are hopeful it will mark a giant leap for our club competitions.”
