However, the kick-off time of the final is yet to be announced, with CAF stating: “It will confirm the kick-off time in due course.”
The Godswill Akpabio International Stadium is the home of Nigerian Premier League side Akwa United.
Thankfully, unlike the current mess surrounding the potentially non-neutral venue in Morocco for the CAF Champions League final, there are no such problems concerning the CAF Confederation Cup final.
That’s because TP Mazembe (DR Congo), Al Ahly Tripoli (Libya), RS Berkane (Morocco) and Orlando Pirates (South Africa) are engaged in the semi-finals.
Orlando Pirates and TP Mazembe will take handy leads into this weekend’s second leg semi-finals.
