Fans encouraged to arrive early for prestigious TOTAL CAF Super Cup match in Doha
Fans are advised to arrive early for Friday’s TOTAL CAF Super Cup match between Espérance Sportive de Tunis and Zamalek SC at Thani Bin Jassim Stadium (kick-off 7:00 PM).
Excitement has been building all week for the sell-out match between the Tunisian and Egyptian giants. The trophy tour kicked off last week and has visited a number of public places, including malls, schools and businesses.
Supporters are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the Fan Zone, which will open at 4:00 PM. The Fan Zone will feature food trucks, entertainment and various football-related activities. There will be two Fan Zone locations outside the stadium – one for ES Tunis fans; the other for Zamalek supporters. Each Fan Zone will feature food and entertainment which reflects the culture of the different countries.
Fans are also reminded about prohibited items. Items which are commonly confiscated include lighters, water bottles and perfume. Click here to see the full list of prohibited items.
This is the second time the CAF Super Cup will take place in Doha following an agreement between the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the Qatar Football Association. The match will also take place in the Qatari capital in 2021 and 2022.
The match and associated activities will be supported by more than 230 volunteers, aged 18-40, from the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy’s Volunteer Programme, which was launched to train volunteers who may support the organisation of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.
ES Tunis will be playing competitive football in Doha for the fourth time in the last year. They finished as runners-up in last season’s CAF Super Cup following a narrow defeat to Morocco’s Raja Casablanca, before winning the Tunisian Super Cup thanks to a 2-1 victory over Club Athlétique Bizertin. In December, ES Tunis finished fifth in the FIFA Club World Cup™ after beating Qatari side Al Sadd SC at Khalifa International Stadium.
ES Tunis are aiming to win the CAF Super Cup for the second time in their history after previously winning the event in 1995. Zamalek, meanwhile, are aiming to lift the trophy for the fourth time after previous victories in 1994, 1997 and 2003.
