The stage for the CAF Champions League final is set as Kaizer Chiefs looks to dethrone the mighty Al Ahly. We have seen various kits earn that all-important star – here's a look at the last 10 kits to win the tournament.
Kits are incredibly emblematic of a club’s success in a particular season, and a good number of fans in South Africa would agree that they have not forgotten the kit Bafana Bafana won the 1996 AFCON in – nor have they forgotten the kit the national side wore at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

These are just examples of how kits just stick with you, especially those that dawned in moments of triumph. Amakhosi will be confident that they can press the pause button on the dominance of north African clubs in this competition and get their hands on Africa’s most valuable club prize.
Kaizer Chiefs have already overachieved given their CAF Champions League record, as this is their first-ever appearance at the final. Only Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns have gotten this far before, with the latter winning it in 2016.
Meanwhile, Chiefs’ opponents are the most successful side in the competition’s history with nine titles, and finishing as runners-up on four occasions with the last being in 2018.

Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane is one of the tournament’s most successful coaches with two CAF Champions League titles from two different clubs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Al Ahly.
