The match between AS Maniema Union of the DRC and Mamelodi Sundows of South Africa will be played in Kinshasa. It is indeed the Stade des Martyrs that will host this match counting for the 16th final first leg of the CAF Champions League. The match will take place on Sunday 17 October at 2 pm GMT.
The match was to be played at the Joseph-Kabila stadium in Kindu. But it did not receive the approval of CAF. The latter considers that the stadium does not meet international standards.
Maniema Union had to choose between two stadiums. Either the Martyrs Stadium in Kinshasa or the Mazembe Stadium in Lubumbashi. These are the only stadiums approved in the DRC. In the end, the Stade des Martyrs of Kinshasa will host this CAF Champions League match.
