CAF Champions League to be broadcast by beIN SPORTS

beIN SPORTS have acquired exclusive rights to show the African Continent’s version of the Champions League in the United States. Fittingly, the 2017 version of the competition sees the Group Stage, which starts this week, expanded from 8 teams to 16 with 4 groups of 4 teams now competing for 8 Quarterfinal places.

Unlike other continental cup competitions, most African Champions League matches take place over the weekend with matches played Friday through Sunday (there will be one midweek round June 20-21 this year). The Group Stage kicks off this Friday, May 12 and will conclude July 9. The competition will see a summer break and resume September 8 with the Quarterfinal stage and see its Final played in early November. The winner of the competition will represent Africa in the 2017 Club World Cup in the U.A.E. in December 2017.
