Caf adjourns Champions League 2nd leg final

Date for the return leg of Caf Champions League final has been rescheduled by the football ruling body to avoid clashing with the calendar of the African Women Championship final

Caf has announced the change of date for the second leg the 2012 Caf Champions League final earlier scheduled to hold during the weekend of November 9, 10 and 11, 2012.

The encounter will now take place in the weekend of November 16, 17 and 18, 2012, the body said in a press release on Thursday.

The review was necessary to avoid clash of calendar with the final of the African Women Championship slated for November 11, 2012 and will allow each finalist team to have two weeks between each leg of the final, Caf said.

The first leg of the semifinals will hold this weekend between Nigeria’s Sunshine Stars and Egyptians Al Ahly in Akure, with Congolese side TP Mazembe playing host to defending champions Esperance Tunis in Lubumbashi.
