Venue announced for CAF Champions League clash

1 August 2013 16:19

Al Ahly and Orlando Pirates will play their CAF Champions League match in El Gouna after Cairo was deemed a security risk.

The second game of Group A for both sides had originally been scheduled to be played in Al Ahly's home city.

However, concerns from Egyptian officials has seen Sunday's game moved 430 kilometres south-east of the capital to the small coastal town.

It will be the second time the Egyptian champions have been forced to play in El Gouna during this campaign after their opening game with fierce rivals Zamalek on July 20 was also moved there.

Al Ahly had requested the game be postponed due to Ramadan, but the CAF refused.

The governing body also rejected the Pirates' request for the match to be played at a neutral venue outside Egypt, although the game will be played behind closed doors after fan violence earlier in the competition. The match will kick off at 16:30 local time.

Group A is wide open after the opening round of fixtures, as Al Ahly, Orlando, Zamalek and Leopards are all on one point.
