February 21 – Tunisia have become the latest country to officially submit a bid to host this year’s Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League final on May 29.
The announcement came on deadline day and faces counter bids from Morocco, who have also proposed hosting the second-tier African Confederation Cup final, and Rwanda.
Two Tunisian clubs are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, including four-time winners and current holders Esperance and Etoile du Sahel.
“We have met all the criteria required by CAF,” FTF said in a statement. “We are more than capable, and willing, to host the 2020 CAF Champions League final.”
It will be the first time that CAF’s two club competition finals will each be hosted as single matches, having previously been played home and away over two legs.
