World News

With the two teams for the 2021/22 CAF Champions League final now confirmed, here are the clubs that have won the prestigious competition the most times! 

Reigning champions Al Ahly will face off against Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca in the CAFCL final on 30 May.

The latter will have a home-ground advantage after CAF announced that the match will be played at the Mohammed V Stadium in Morocco.

This was not received well by Ahly, who filed a complaint last week demanding that the match be played at a different venue as they believe the decision favours Casablanca and contradicts fair play standards, per KingFut.

However, their appeal was rebuffed by CAF, who argued that only Morocco and Senegal had made bids to host the final, with the latter later pulling out of the running to stage the event, leaving the former to do the honours.

Controversy aside, it is Pitso Mosimane's club that is the most successful team in the competition, having won the tournament a staggering 10 times, including back-to-back titles in the past two seasons.

Fellow Egyptians Zamalek have lifted the trophy five times, although the last time they won it was 20 years ago, in the 2001/02 season.
