CAF Exco decides on 12-team AWCON among other Major decisions

There are indications the CAF executive committee will scrap the two-legged finals for its flagship Club continental competitions.

At the Exco round-table which held on Wednesday, footballlive.ng gathered there was a consensus on adopting a single final for both the Champions League and Confederation Cup.

 


The decision may not be unconnected with the embarrassment in this season’s CAF Champions League second-leg match in Tunisia, where center Referee Papa Gassama awarded the game to Esperance after Wydad Casablanca players walked off in protest.

In a thread on the CAF president, Ahmad’s official handle, it also confirmed the decisions:

Huge decision that @CAF_Online’s #exco took today : the #CAFChampionsLeague and #CAFConfederationsCup finals will be now played on a single game. #Football #CAF

 

Among other decisions taken, the Executive Committee also voted on increasing the number of participating teams in the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations from 8 to 12 from the next edition.

With @CAF_Online’s #exco, we took a great decision today : feminine’s #AFCON will now engage 12 teams ! They only were 8 until now. #CAF #Football
