Egyptian giants Ahly have agreed to participate in a friendly tournament in Qatar in January.

“The club agreed to play in Qatar after the sponsors modified some of the contract’s terms,” the club stated on Tuesday.

The Red Devils are set to play Germany’s powerhouse Bayern Munich on 6 January, two days before playing Qatari Army.

Ahly won the CAF Champions League title last weekend after defeating Esperance of Tunisia 3-2 on aggregate.

The seven-time African champions had already played Bayern last year in in Qatar also and lost 2-1.
