Nigeria’s Uyo to host 2022 Confederation Cup final

CAF has announced that Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, Nigeria, will host 2022 Caf Confederation Cup final on Friday, 20 May 2022. Orlando Pirates have one foot in the final after beating Al Ahly Tripoli of Libya 2-0 away from home on Sunday. The two teams clash at the Orlando Stadium on Sunday in the return leg 

This is the first intercontinental major cup final hosted in Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo. Uyo is the capital of Akwa Ibom State – the home of Nigeria’s Premier League side Akwa United. Last year (2021), the TotalEnergies Confederation Cup was hosted in Cotonou, Benin, where Morocco’s Raja Club Athletic beat Algerian side JS Kabylie 2-1.

Four teams remain in the race to win the 2022 Caf Confederation Cup. In the other semi-finals, DR Congo’s TP Mazembe scored a late goal to secure a 1-0 victory over RS Berkane of Morocco. Mazembe visit Berkane, winners of the competition in 2020, on Sunday for the return leg. Caf will confirm the kick-off time for the final in due course.
