CAF has announced January 22 to 24 date for the postponed CAF Confederation Cup game between Rivers United and South Africa’s Bloemfontein Celtic.
The game earlier scheduled for January 6 in Port Harcourt was postponed after the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 failed to give waiver to the South Africa side to come to the country without the strict COVID-19 protocols put in place by the country.
The Nigeria Football Federation on behalf of the club however requested for the postponement of the game, a prayer the continent football ruling body answered.
The game will now take place between Friday, January 22 and Sunday 24 in a neighbouring country to Nigeria, which has more lenient COVID-19 protocols for travellers arriving from South Africa.
The winner of the twoleg will be meeting another Nigeria side, Enyimba for a place in the group stage of the championships.
