Atlabara agree to play two legs against Al Ahly in Egypt

The South Sudan Premier League champions Atlabara FC have agreed to play two of their CAF Total Champions League games against Egyptian giants Al Ahly in Cairo, Egypt.

Samuel Kabi Simon, the Club general secretary said on Tuesday that the two Clubs have agreed to play the games in Egypt.

“We shall be flaying out to Egypt on August 6th for the two games. We cannot host any game in Juba because the Stadium is under renovation and the Egyptian team did not want to play in Khartoum,” explained the Club official.

Atlabara FC will host the Egyptian Premier League Champions in the first leg between August 9-11th in Al Salam Stadium before the return leg is played August 23-25.

Al Ahly have won the CAF Champions League title a record eight times and the CAF Super Cup six times.

South Sudan’s Cup winners Amarat FC will face Tunisia’s US Ben Guerdane in round one of the CAF Confederations Cup. They will play their first leg game away in Tunisia between August 9-11.
