Football fans are in for a treat as Al Ahly and USM Alger gear up to face off in the CAF Super Cup. The showdown is set to take place on September 15, 2023, at the renowned King Fahd Stadium.
Al Ahly has proven its might by toppling the defending CAF champion with a decisive 3-2 victory in the CAF final back in June 2023. Their journey to this point has been nothing short of impressive, and they are poised to exhibit their skills once again on the grand stage.
On the other hand, USM Alger has emerged victorious in the CAF Confederation Cup, clinching the title by securing an away goals victory with a 2-2 draw against Young African. This triumph has positioned them as a formidable contender in the upcoming CAF Super Cup.

“In an era where international stars are flocking to Saudi Arabia, it’s noteworthy that African Football is also making its mark on the international scene,” said Veron Mosengo-Omba, the CAF General Secretary.
As the excitement builds and anticipation mounts, the stage is set for an electrifying clash between Al Ahly and USM Alger.
