CAFCL final coming to Mzansi?

The 2020 CAF Champions League final may be played out in South Africa, according to reports in Egyptian media.

In what will be a historic edition of the African Champions League, the final will be a one-off match at a neutral venue instead of the traditional two-legged tie played home and away between the two finalists.

Scroll through the gallery above to see all five stadiums reportedly shortlisted to host the historic final in 2020.

Last season, the final was marred by controversy over questionable officiating in the opening game between Esperance and Wydad Casablanca - while the second leg was abandoned altogether.

Amidst the VAR controversy in the clash in Tunis that resulted in the Tunisian champions retaining their crown, it was decided by the Confederation of African Football to alter the format of the competition.

And according to Yallakora, the five countries that have been earmarked for the continental spectacle are Egypt, Gabon, Sudan, Morocco and South Africa.
