Tweny thousand fans will be allowed to attend Al Ahly’s quarterfinal, first leg CAF Champions League clash.

The Red Devils will tackle Tunisian giants Esperance de Tunis, with the first leg in Cairo set for September 16 and the return game in Rades a week later.

Security officials in Egypt have agreed to allow 20,000 fans inside the stadium, with Ahly looking to claim a record-extending ninth Champions League crown.

“The tickets will be available for purchase 72 hours before the game,” Al Ahly’s executive manager Shereen Shams revealed, as quoted by KingFut.

Ahly qualified for the last eight by finishing second in their group behind Wydad Casablanca, while Esperance topped their pool ahead of reigning African champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
