CAF Champions League

Kaizer Chiefs have communicated a further delay to their CAF Champions League preliminary round second leg fixture against PWD Bamenda.

Chiefs beat Bamenda 1-0 in the away leg last Sunday and were initially set to host the return leg encounter at FNB Stadium on Friday evening at 18h00.

However, due to logistical challenges experienced by the Cameroonian outfit, CAF granted their request to have the fixture postponed by 24 hours.

The issues have again resulted in a further postponement as kick-off has now been shifted by another hour to 19h00 this evening.

"After careful consideration, the Match Commissioner has moved the match kick-off to 19h00 this evening," read a statement from Amakhosi.

"This is to allow PWD Bamenda to fulfill all the pre-match processes. In the spirit of Fair Play."
