CAF announces date for Pyramids v Nkana Confederation Cup match

Pyramids FC will be facing Zambia’s Nkana in the CAF Confederation Cup Group Stage opening match on 10 March, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) informed the Egyptian club on Wednesday.

Big-spending club Pyramids were drawn in the challenging Group D at the Confederation Cup Group stage alongside Zambia’s Nkana, Morocco’s Raja Casablanca, Angola’s Primero de Agosto, and Tanzania’s Namongo.

According to a letter by the CAF, Pyramids FC will be hosting Nkana at Cairo’s Air Defence stadium at 6:00 pm Cairo local time (GMT+2).

The Egyptian Premier League rising power, Pyramids, qualified for the group stage of the Confederation Cup, Africa’s secondary club competition, after defeating Ivorian side Racing Club 4-0 on aggregate in the playoff.

Under the guidance of Argentinian boss Rodolfo Arruabarrena, Pyramids reached the final of the same tournament last season, where they were defeated by Morocco’s Nahdet Berkane in a controversial game.
