Ahly of Egypt will meet Tunisia's Etoile Sahel in the African Super Cup in Khartoum next month.

Ahly of Egypt will meet Tunisia's Etoile Sahel in the African Super Cup in Khartoum next month.

This follows a decision by officials to break with the tradition of allowing the African Champions League winners to host the yearly match against the Confederation Cup winners.

The Confederation of African Football wants the Super Cup to form part of their 50th anniversary celebrations in Sudan, one of the four founder members of the organisation.

Ahly will be seeking a third Super Cup to follow up on previous triumphs in 2002 and last year.

Etoile Sahel, who won the Confederation Cup last month, have also had previous Super Cup success in 1998. - BBC
