The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has moved the 2018 African Super Cup to Qatar.
The fixture pits Champions League winners, Esperance of Tunisia, and Confederation Cup winners, Raja Casablanca of Morocco.
The match is usually hosted at the home of the Champions League winners but this year’s edition will be the first time the encounter will be played outside Africa.
Caf confirmed the development in a statement early this week.
“Caf executive committee decided that Total Caf Super Cup 2018 between Espérance Sportive de Tunis & Raja Club Athletic will be played in Qatar .. Date and time will be announced later,” announced Caf.
The Caf Super Cup was first played in 1993 and Egyptian giants Al Ahly have won a record six titles.
