Rwandan referee given Africa Super Cup nod
After successfully handling Afcon final in South Africa, Rwandan referee Felicien Kabanda has been nominated by Confederation of Africa Football [CAF] to officiate the upcoming African Super Cup match between Egypt’s Ahly and Congolese side Leopards at Borg El-Arab stadium on February 23.
Kabanda who will be the second assistant referee will work alongside Angessom Ogbamariam who is the first assistant referee from Eritrea and Papa Gassam Bakary from Gambia who will be centre man.
The match commissioner is Jawula Mahamudu Nuru from Gambia.
Egypt’s Ahly recently received security permission to play the African Super Cup at Borg El-Arab stadium in Alexandria with fans attendance.
Egyptian security refused to authorise the attendance of fans since Port Said football disaster that left more than 70 killed last February.
African champions Ahly will host the the Confederation Cup heroes Leopards from Congo on 23 February.
Ahly are chasing their fifth African Super Cup title and their first since 2009 when they defeated Tunisian side Club Sfaxien 2-1 in Cairo
