The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced a change in the dates for the quarter finals and semi-finals of the inter club competitions – 2017 Total CAF Champions League and Total Confederation Cup 2017.

The communication has been made following an executive committee meeting on July 20, 2017 in Morocco which passed a lot of decisions in regards to African football.

“For the quarter-finals of the two competitions, the first leg will take place on the weekend of 15-17 September 2017 with second leg on the weekend 22-24 September 2017…” read part of the communication.

Previously, the quarters were fixed for 8-10 September 2017 (first leg) and 15-17 September 2017 (second leg).

The first leg of the semi-final remains unchanged, the weekend of 29 September – 1 October 2017, but the second leg has been prolonged to the weekend of 20-22 October 2017, instead of the previous dates, 13-15 October 2017.

However, the schedule for the final of the two competitions remain same.
