CAF Super Cup in Qatar to be played in a bio-bubble!

The Total CAF Super Cup in Doha, Qatar on Friday night, May 28, 2021 will be played in a biologically safe environment (bio-bubble).

Kick-off is at 19h00 (local time).

The match will pit the winners of the 2019-2020 Total CAF Champions League, Al Ahly (Egypt), against the winners of the 2019-2020 Total CAF Confederation Cup, Renaissance Sportive de Berkane (Morocco) at Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium, Doha.

This means that both teams and officials who will be involved in the match will be in a “bio-bubble” upon arrival. This includes no contact with people who are outside the biologically safe environment prior to the match.

This is the first time CAF adopts a full bio-bubble in a match since the start of the pandemic last year.

The Qatari capital Doha hosted the two previous editions of the Total CAF Super Cup and will be once again the host of the annual one-match playoff.
