The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has called off the Confederation Cup first tie between AS Kigali and Kampala Capital City Authority Football Club (KCCA FC).

Kampala City Authority Boys were already in Rwanda to take on AS Kigali in the preliminary round first leg fixture but the game was called off by CAF after the team failed to raise a required quorum of 15 players, it was confirmed on Wednesday morning in a letter addressed to the Ugandan club by the Football governing body in Africa.

The team’s CEO Anisha Muhoozi has now revealed to our inside source that despite travelling with a squad of 15 players as per the CAF  regulations after 12 of their players tested positive for Covid-19 back in Kampala, the team suffered another blow as two of their players also returned positive results while in Kigali on match day.

 

Therefore, according to the CAF Covid-19 regulations, KCCA FC has lost the match 2-0 as they failed to raise the minimum number of players (11 players plus 4 substitutes).

KCCA FC will now head into the second leg in Kampala, Uganda next year with a 2-0 deficit.
