Ahly African Super Cup

The annual African Super Cup game between Ahly, the winners of the 2021 CAF Champions League, and Raja, the winner of the Confederation Cup title, was initially scheduled to be played last September but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ahly claimed the 2021 African Champions League title after beating Kaizer Chiefs of South Africa 3-0 in the final game last July.

Meanwhile, Raja Club Athletic secured the Confederation Cup title after beating JS Kabylie of Algeria 2-1 in the final game also in July.

Ahly holds the record for the most African Super Cup wins with seven titles, followed by Egypt's Zamalek with four titles.

Qatar is gearing up to host the 2022 World Cup finals from 21 November to 18 December 2022.
