Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo To Host CAF Confederation Cup Final
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has confirmed that the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, Nigeria will host the 2021/22 Confederation Cup final on Friday, May 20th, 2022, while Morocco will on May 30 host the 2022 CAF Champions League final.
This is the first intercontinental major cup final to be hosted in Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo. The stadium is also home to Nigeria Professional Football League sides, Akwa United and Dakkada FC.
“CAF received bids from Senegal and Morocco and, after the subsequent withdrawal of the Senegalese bid, Morocco has been awarded the hosting rights,” the spokesman said.
CAF did not say where in Morocco the highlight of the African club season would be played, with Agadir, Casablanca, Marrakech, Rabat, and Tangiers possible venues.
The decision to stage a second successive Champions League final in Morocco will upset title-holders Al Ahly from Egypt, who are likely to play Moroccan club Wydad Casablanca in the final.
