Mohamed Fadl, a member of the five-year committee that runs the Egyptian Football Association, confirmed that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) had agreed to attend from 5 to 10,000 fans in the CAF Champions League final.
Al-Ahly faces its counterpart Zamalek, next Friday evening, November 27, in the African Champions League final.

He added that the Confederation of African Football has no objection to the attendance of fans in the African final, but at the same time he will await the approval of the security authorities in Egypt.
He explained that in the event that the masses attend the African Champions League final, there will be strict precautionary measures, pointing out that Kaf is happy to hold the final in Egypt.
He completed his remarks: “Al-Ahly and Zamalek will undergo a medical examination for the Corona virus next Wednesday under the supervision of CAF.”
