The African football authority has reserved Friday and Saturday for Caf Champions League matches and Sunday for Confederation Cup matches

Effective from the group stages, Caf Interclub competitions will witness a new identity regarding the broadcast of the matches with dedicated days and kick-off times.
 
Following the approval of the Caf Interclub Committee, the Total Caf Champions League will henceforth be played on Friday and Saturday for weekend matches and Tuesday for mid-week matches.
 
Sundays have been reserved for the Total Caf Confederation Cup and Wednesday for the mid-week games.
 
Caf General Secretary, Amr Fahmy, said the decision is towards creating a stronger identity for the Club competitions, exposure, marketable and accessible to a wider global audience.
 
“We strongly believe in having a unique identity for the club competitions and also creating a rendezvous for the fans, a major stakeholder to identify with the two competitions. It will also increase the number of matches broadcasted by the TV Rights Holders.
 
“There will be a few exceptions in some special cases since it is a novelty. However, we are hopeful it will mark a giant leap for our club competitions,” Fahmy said.
