Fixture (Tuesday, May 15)
KCCA v Al Ahly at Namboole
KAMPALA - Africa soccer governing body CAF has appointed South African referees to take charge of the Champions League group stage match between Uganda's KCCA FC and Al Ahly of Egypt.
The two sides face off next week Tuesday at Mandela National Stadium in Kampala.
Victor Gomes will be the main referee while Zakhele Siwela and Johannes Sello Moshidi will be the first and second assistants, respectively.
Ugandan champions KCCA are drawn in Group A with record winners Al Ahly, two-time winners Espérance de Tunis (Tunisia) and Township Rollers of Bostwana.
KCCA started their campaign of the group stages with a 1-0 defeat to Township Rollers last Friday in Gaborone.
A month ago, KCCA eliminated Ethiopia’s St George 1-0 on aggregate at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo to become the first Ugandan club to progress to the group stages of the lucrative competition ever since their introduction to the league in 1997.
But before that, Ugandan teams Simba and SC Villa had reached the finals of the older version of the competition - African Cup of Champions.
