Chiefs confirm Cameroon trip details

CAF Champions League

Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed more details around their upcoming CAF Champions League fixtures against Cameroonian outfit PWD Bamenda.

Chiefs return to continental club competition for the first time since 2016, after they finished as runners-up to Mamelodi Sundowns in the 2019/20 Absa Premiership campaign.

Amakhosi have been drawn against Cameroon's Elite One Championship winners Bamenda in the preliminary round, which will see them play home and away for a spot in the first round.

Details have now been confirmed as to when and where exactly the Soweto giants will be playing, with the first leg seeing them travel North to the city of Limbe next weekend.

The return leg is expected to be played the following weekend, though a venue as well as the kick-off day and time has yet to be decided by the hosts, who could possibly take the encounter to their alternative home ground in Durban.

"The first game takes place on Sunday, 29 November at the Limbe Omnisports Stadium in Limbe, with kick-off at 16:00 (SA Time)," reads a statement on Chiefs' website.

"Chiefs will then host the Cameroonian’s in the return leg. The date, venue and kick-off time will be confirmed soon."

Should Gavin Hunt's charges advance past the Bamenda-based outfit, they will come up against Angolan giants Primero de Agosto for a place in the group stages – a feat the club have never before achieved on the continent.

The Glamour Boys were due to face Swallows FC in the DStv Premiership next Sunday, but this encounter will likely rescheduled to a later date.
