Libyan clubs permitted to host home games in 2020 Arab Clubs Championship

The general assembly of the Union of Arab Football Associations (UAFA) on Friday approved the Libyan clubs’ request to host their home matches within the next Arab Clubs Championship.

The executive committee of UAFA also agreed to allow the Libyan teams to host their matches at their stadiums starting from the next edition of the Arab Clubs Championship to be held next year.

The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) has banned the North African nation from hosting international matches since 2013, citing turmoil and lack of security in the country.

Libyan clubs have had to use neutral venues to host their matches while the national team has also played home World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Mali, Egypt, and Tunisia over the last five years.
