The CAF Champions League is the top of the football pyramid in the brown continent, and all major clubs in all countries seek to reach the championship first, then reach its farthest point, the final match, and be crowned with what is called the “African Princess”.
The final match in the past decade was the subject of many crises, such as the one that occurred in 2019 at the Rades stadium in Tunisia, after the video technology stopped working and Wydad withdrew because of that in front of Esperance.
Despite the many crises in the African continent, which appear on many occasions in the Champions League, the final match is always of a special nature, especially on the public level, and of course the technical.
