The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has rescheduled the 2022/23 CAF Champions League first preliminary round fixture between Burkinabe side R.C Kadiogo and Asante Kotoko.
The first leg encounter will now be played on Monday, September 12, 2022, at the Friendship Stadium in Cotonou, Benin.
The game was initially scheduled to take place at the Stade de Yamoussoukro in Ivory Coast on Friday, September 9. Ivorian authorities say they have planned renovation works at the venue after the 2022 WAFU B CAF Women’s Champions League qualifiers.
Burkinabe teams cannot play international games on home soil because facilities in the country do not meet the standards set by CAF.
The Porcupine Warriors departed Ghana today for Benin via land for the about seven-hour journey with a 22-man squad.
Cameroonian forward Georges Mfegue, who missed the Sudan preseason trip because of injury, has been passed fit and travelled with the team.
Captain Richard Boadu, goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad, and Ugandan import Steven Mukwala have also travelled with the Ghanaian champions.
Coach Seydou Zerbo will face his former side without the club’s top scorer last season, Franck Mbella, who is sitting out because of injury alongside right-back Augustine Agyapong, and new signing Eric Zeze.
