The Confederation of African Football (CAF) officially announces the possible dates for the African Super Cup match between Champions League winners Egypt's Ahly and Confederation Cup heroes Leopards from Congo.

"CAF informed us that the match will be held in Egypt on 22, 23 or 24 February," the Egyptian football association (EFA) reveals in a statement on their official website on Tuesday.

The top teams face off, as Ahly wrested the African Champions League title from Tunisian giants Esperance.

The Congolese-side Leopards, on their part, boast top condition after their first-ever continental title after defeating Malian-side Djoliba in the Confederation Cup.
