This comes after a series of positive performances exhibited by Clubs from these two countries. South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns are the reigning Champions of the CAF champions league and at the same time, this year they have made it to the quarterfinals of the same competition whereas Super sport United are also representing the rainbow nation well.
Egyptian football has always been on the up and their clubs have always finished in the latter stages of the CAF competition, Al Ahly, Zamalek, Al Masry and others have done massively better than the rest of their West African and East African counterparts.
The league’s in these two countries are at a high professional level with high sponsorship partnerships and television viewership across the continent which interpreted into high sources of revenue and competitiveness.
