Ghanaian Ibrahim Sannie Daara has been appointed as the CAF Media Officer for the 2020 CAF Super Cup to be played in the Qatari capital of Doha this evening.
Sannie Daara is among the top officials CAF has appointed to take charge of various duties in its biggest club competition game which will be played between the 2018/19 CAF Champions League winners Espérance de Tunis and 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup winners Zamalek.
As part of his duties he will lead and direct the media operations of CAF during the match as well as that of the two clubs before and after the match while providing the media with all the necessary assistance to make their work smooth.
The latest appointment for Mr Daara comes just seven months after the Ghanaian took charge of the opening and final matches of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
The former journalist has already been working on some of CAF’s media operations as well as the Media Experts Panel which serves as the media advisory body of CAF.
The clash is set to be played at the Thani bin Jassim Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar.
Esperance defeated Wydad Casablanca last year to book their place in the Super Cup by winning the CAF Champions League, while Zamalek beat RS Berkane to win the Caf Confederation Cup title.
The 2020 Caf Super Cup will be the 28th Caf Super Cup, an annual football match in Africa organised by the Confederation of African Football (Caf), between the winners of the previous season’s two Caf club competitions, the Caf Champions League and the Caf Confederation Cup.
The match will be played in Qatar for the second season in a row, after they signed a three-year agreement with Caf.
