Kaizer Chiefs’ opening group match in this season’s CAF Champions League against Wydad Casablanca in Morocco will not go ahead.
Chiefs are now waiting for the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to decide the way forward after their match against Casablanca was called off.
“The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have confirmed that the CAF Champions League match between Wydad Athletic Club from Casablanca in Morocco and Kaizer Chiefs, will not be played as scheduled on Saturday, 13 February 2021,” SAFA said in a statement.
“In a one-liner correspondence sent to SAFA last night, CAF through its Competition Division manager, Ahmed Salem said ‘CAF will communicate the updated decision in due time.’
“Chiefs were scheduled to have left for Casablanca on Wednesday evening but the team was denied entry visas to Morocco, forcing them to cancel the trip to North Africa.”
