The African Football Confederation (CAF) plans to complete the semi-finals and finals of African club cups (Champions League and Confederation Cup) 2019-2020 in August or September.

The first scenario will be to play the semi-finals of the two inter-clubs competitions between July 31 and August 9 (away leg matches between July 31 and August 2 and return leg matches between August 7 and 9). The final of the CAF Confederations Cup will take place on August 23 and the Champions League final will take place on August 28. The second scenario proposes to play the semi-finals and finals of the African Champions League and the CAF Confederations Cup in September. The away leg matches of the two last four will take place on September 4 and 6 and the return leg matches will take place between September 11 and 13. The final of the CAF Cup will take place on 23 and the Champions League final will take place two days later. The two proposals have been submitted to the members of the inter-clubs commission of CAF who will examine and propose one deadline which will be presented to the Emergency Committee for validation.
CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup have been put on hold since the outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic and CAF is working towards resuming the Interclub competitions in order to plan ahead of the 2020-2021 season. It should be recalled that for the semi-final of the African Champions League, Raja Casablanca will play against Zamaleck of Egypt and Wydad Casablanca will take on Al Ahly of Egypt.
