Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates have rejected the Confederation of African Football (CAF) decision that matches should be played at a neutral venue. The clubs have told Director of Competitions at CAF, Samson Adamu, to apply the rules laid down for the competitions.

CAF called an urgent meeting on Friday with Chiefs, Sundowns and Pirates and the South African Football Association (SAFA). The purpose of the meeting was to find a solution to the recent challenges experienced by the clubs when they are expected to travel to other African countries for CAF's competitions.

Since the new Covid-19 variant was detected in South Africa, most countries across the world have barred South Africa to enter their countries for fear of contracting the virus. Chiefs were denied Visa's by the Moroccan government when they were supposed to play against Wydad in Morocco last Friday.

The Algerian government on Thursday also refused to welcome Sundowns in their countries. This is a difficult situation for the South African clubs because even in terms of a neutral venue, those other counties will refuse for the game to be played.
