The Confederation of African Football, CAF, has opened an investigation into the fracas that occurred at the trophy and medals hand-over at the CAF Confederation Cup final. A group of fans ran onto the pitch and disrupted the ceremony after Raja Casablanca had won the cup.
“Following the incidents that occurred during the CAF TotalEnergies Confederation Cup final between Raja Sporting Club and JS Kabylie in Cotonou, on Saturday, July 10, 2021, CAF announces the opening of a disciplinary investigation,” the statement from Cairo read.
It is not clear how CAF are going to go about the disciplinary processes since the game was played at a neutral venue. It did look like it was the Algerian club, JS Kabylie’s fans who were unhappy with the outcome of the match.
“CAF strongly condemns these unacceptable behaviours, harmful to the image of one of its competitions. It opened a disciplinary investigation in order to determine the responsibilities of these abuses and to apply possible sanctions, with the aim of preventing such incidents from recurring,” the statement concluded.
