Doha, Qatar: The Local Organising Committee of the Total CAF Super Cup 2019 final in Doha, which will be held for the first time outside the African continent on Mar 29, has completed preparations to receive the African champions, Esperance Sportive de Tunis and Raja Casablanca.

The LOC urged the ticket holders to arrive early at Thani bin Jassim Stadium (Al Gharafa Stadium) to avoid congestion near the entry gates.
It was announced that the gates will be opened at 3.30 pm on Friday whereas family activities will commence two hours prior.
