CAF announced new dates in the inter-club competitions
The Africa Football Confederation (CAF) has set new dates of the Interclub competitions.
The new dates will partially take effect from the 2018-2019 before they are totally adopted in the following season.
“The next season (2018-2019) will start in December 2018 and end in May 2019 and from the following season (2019-2020), the two inter-club competitions will start between the month of September and October 2019 to end in May 2020 as on the old continent with the Europa League and League Champions,”reads in its part.
The changes have been placed in order to fit the European format of running continental competition rather than over the course of a calendar year as earlier communicated at a meeting of the Confederation of African Football in July that was hosted by Morocco.
New timing comes few months after the football governing body announced shifting of Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) from January to June from its next staging in Cameroon in 2019.
