β€œThe Confederation of African Football, CAF, today granted another approval to Southern Arena in Bo city to host MN49 of the 2023-24 CAF champions league first leg, second rounds preliminary match opposing Bo Rangers FC of Sierra Leone vs CR Belouizdad of Algeria scheduled for 17th September, 2023,” Sesay noted.
