Zesco United’s 2017 CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinal dates against SuperSport United have been adjusted by a week.
The decision was made during a CAF executive committee meeting held on July 20 in Morocco at which both home and away quarterfinal dates in the 2017 CAF Champions League and 2017 CAF Confederation Cup were amended.
“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,” CAF stated.
“Previously, the quarters were fixed for 8-10 September 2017 (first leg) and 15-17 September 2017 (second leg).”
Zesco was due to visit Pretoria on September 9 and will instead travel to South Africa on September 16.
The return leg will be played on September 23 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola to decide who goes through to the semifinals.
But all semifinal and final dates remain unchanged.
The semifinals first leg dates will be during the weekend of September 29-October 1 and the final legs will be played over the weekend of October 20-22.
The Confederation Cup final first leg will be played November 17-19 and the final leg November 24-26.
This will be a week after the two-legged CAF Champions League final October 27-29 and November 3-5.
