CAF Champions League: Hearts of Oak to play only one leg against Kamsar
Ghana Premier League champions Accra Hearts of Oak SC will host Guinean opponent CL Kamsar in a one-leg encounter on September 19, 2021, at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The winner of the tie is set to advance to the next stage of the 2021/22 Total Energies CAF Champions League.
This comes in after the Organising Committee of the Competition took a decision to cancel the Phobians scheduled visit to Guinea for the first leg due to the political unrest in the country.
The Guinea side was to host Hearts of Oak this weekend before a return leg in Accra.
In a letter sent to the General Secretary of the GFA, Prosper Harrison Addo (Esq) on the situation, CAF quoted the provisions of Articles 1 & 2.1 of Chapter XIII of the Regulations governing the competition which stipulate that the following shall apply:
“1. In case of troubles, wars, forces majeure or internal situations in a country that may affect the security conditions during the planning of a match, the Organizing Committee may take the following measures: 2. In two-leg matches (home and away):
2.1 If the case concerns only one country, the federation will play its home match on ground in another country, or a single game will be played on the opponent’s field. Where appropriate, the Organizing Committee will determine the match venue.” The winner of this single match will qualify to the 2nd preliminary round of the competition. In case of a draw at the end of the regulatory time, the winner shall be determined by penalty kicks in accordance to the Laws of the Game”.
The kick-off time for the match is 4 pm.
