CAF Confederation Cup: Zamalek set to revive continental legacy in high-stakes clash with Future FC


Egyptian football giants Zamalek SC are poised to break their lengthy continental drought as they gear up for a high-stakes showdown against Future FC in the TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup Quarter-Finals.

Set to unfold in a two-legged affair on 31 March and 7 April, this North African derby promises fireworks as Zamalek aims to reclaim its former glory on the continental stage.

It’s been four years since Zamalek last tasted continental success, clinching the TotalEnergies CAF Super Cup following their triumph in the TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup back in 2020.

However, the club’s ardent supporters have endured a prolonged wait for another title, heightening the stakes for Zamalek in their quest for redemption.

Under the stewardship of Portuguese coach Jose Gomes, Zamalek is poised for a resurgence on the African football scene. Gomes, who brings a wealth of international experience to the club, is tasked with restoring continental pride and leading Zamalek to glory once again.

At the heart of Zamalek’s ambitions lies midfield maestro Ahmed Hamdi, whose orchestrating skills and vision are pivotal to the team’s success.

Signed by the club after a successful stint in the Major Soccer League with CF Montreal, Hamdi’s presence on the field adds depth and creativity to Zamalek’s gameplay.

Despite their illustrious history, Zamalek faces a formidable challenge in Future FC, a team equally determined to upset the odds and make their mark in African football.

With both sides vying for a spot in the semi-finals, the stage is set for an enthralling showdown between two North African football powerhouses.

Founded in January 1911, Zamalek Sports Club boasts a rich legacy in African football, with a staggering 14 Egyptian Premier League titles and 28 Egypt Cup triumphs to their name.

However, it’s their continental achievements that truly define their stature, with five CAF Champions League titles, one CAF Confederation Cup title, and four CAF Super Cup titles highlighting their illustrious journey in African football.

As Zamalek prepares to embark on their quest for continental glory once again, the passion and fervor of their loyal supporters serve as a driving force behind their aspirations.

With history on their side and a hunger for success, Zamalek is poised to reignite their legacy and end their lengthy continental drought in style.
