Zamalek has had their request approved to postpone the team's first match in the African Champions League against Somalia's Dekadaha from 11 to 16 August, according to local reports published on Thursday.

The Whites have requested earlier to play their match against the Somali champions at Petrosport stadium, but was refused by the security authorities since the game coincides with the first day of Eid Al-Adha holiday.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) decided to play the first and second leg matches between Zamalek and Dekadaha in Egypt, upon the Somali club request.

Zamalek officials were reportedly contacted by Dekadaha's officials to postpone the match for a week, which the Somali club welcomed.

The second-leg match is scheduled to be held on 23, 24, or 25 August.

CAF Confederation Cup champions Zamalek were supposed to play the CAF Super Cup game on 16, 17, or 18 August against the winner of the African Champions League, but the match was postponed to a later date by CAF.
