Caf Super Cup 2020 will be held in Qatar after the Confederation of African Football reached an agreement with the Qatar Football Association (QFA) on Friday.

The encounter between Caf Champions League winners Esperance and Confederation Cup champions Zamalek will take place in Doha on February 14.

Caf president Ahmad Ahmad and his Qatar counterpart Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Thani agreed to the deal to continue the friendly relations between Caf and the QFA.

Next year’s game will be the second time the fixture will take place outside the continent after last year’s encounter between Raja Casablanca and Esperance, which the Moroccans won 2-1.

The one-off game at the Thani Bin Jassim Stadium in Doha was seen by more than 18,000 spectators in what was seen as a success, given it was the first time the governing body had taken the game outside the continent.

Esperance will take on Zamalek seeking to win the trophy after a failure to do so in 2019.
