Kamboi Eagles of Sierra Leone will now use the Stade de Chlef Boumezrag as their home ground for the return leg tie of their CAF Confederations Cup preliminary round qualifiers.
A Decision was finally made after both the Algerian Football Federations (FAF) and Association Sportive Olympique de Chlef (ASO Chlef) officials held several meeting to make a decision on the issue.
Earlier on it was feared that the Sierra Leone FA Cup winners return leg clash against ASO Chlef could be in doubt due to none availability of venue by then.
Kamboi Eagles officials made a request to their Algerian counterpart but both the FAF and ASO Chlef officials were unable to make a decision then and Algeria online media dzfoot.com, quoted ASO Chlef Club President Abdelkrim Medouar saying that such decision will only be made four days after the first leg tie.
The Eagles were expected to host their Algerian opponent in Freetown on the weekend of February 27- March 1, but the Africa football governing body, CAF maintains their ban on West African Ebola Virus affected countries – Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia from hosting any international football due to fears of the virus spreading.
The two sides will meet on Sunday February 15 for the first leg tie in Algeria and already the Sierra Leonean representative have conducted their first training session on Wednesday following their arrival on Tuesday evening.
