The Confederation of African Football announced Monday that the 2019 CAF Super Cup will be played on 29 March in Doha, Qatar.

CAF had previously announced that the cup would be held in Qatar, the first time it is staged outside Africa.

The annual match is traditionally played in the home country of the Champions League winners.

Tunisia's Esperance, who won the African Champions League after beating Egyptian giants Ahly in the final, will meet Morocco's Raja Casablanca, who clinched the Confederation Cup title at the expense of DR Congo's Vita Club.

Ahly hold the record for the most African Super Cup wins with six titles, followed by fellow Cairo side Zamalek and DR Congo's Mazembe with three each.
