RE CANCELLATION OF CCC MATCH 149

This serves to inform our sponsors, fans and stakeholders that the CAF confederation Cup match 149 that was scheduled to be played on Sunday, 9th July, 2017 between Zesco United and Al Hilal El Obied has been cancelled.

In a letter signed by CAF acting General Secretary Essam Ahmed the match will not be played because of the ban slapped on the Sudan FA by FIFA.

“Consequently, El Hilal El Obied club is not allowed to participate in CAF matches and it’s disqualified from CAF interclub competitions in accordance to FIFA’s decision. The aforementioned match is hereby cancelled and will not take place as scheduled. The final situation of group C of the competition will be announced soon,” the letter read in part.

We appeal to our fans who bought pre-sale tickets for the match to visit our secretariat for their refunds.
