The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has officially granted permission for Sudanese clubs Al Hilal Ondurman and Al Merrikh to join the Mauritanian Super D1 for the upcoming season. This groundbreaking decision was confirmed during CAF’s latest Executive Committee meeting, putting an end to weeks of speculation.

The participation of Al Hilal Ondurman and Al Merrikh marks a significant development in the Mauritanian Super D1.

The Mauritanian Football Federation (FFRIM) has been instrumental in facilitating this move, providing comprehensive support to ensure a smooth integration for these clubs.

The FFRIM will cover all accommodation and logistical expenses, including transport and training facilities.

Additionally, both clubs have been guaranteed a spot in an African competition based on their final standings in the league.

While Al Merrikh has embraced the opportunity and confirmed its participation, Al Hilal Ondurman remains uncertain.

Internal disagreements within Al Hilal’s management have caused a delay in their final decision.

Some factions within the club favor the Mauritanian league, while others are inclined towards exploring opportunities in the Tanzanian championship, despite the lack of guarantees there.

The inclusion of Al Hilal and Al Merrikh is expected to elevate the profile and competitiveness of the Mauritanian Super D1.

Next season, the league will introduce Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology to enhance the accuracy of officiating and reduce contentious decisions.

This advancement aligns with broader efforts to modernize the league and improve the quality of play.

Moreover, Mauritanian elite clubs will benefit from increased financial support, allowing them to strengthen their squads and improve training facilities.

This boost in resources is anticipated to raise the overall standard of the league and attract more talent.

The addition of Al Hilal and Al Merrikh will undoubtedly add excitement to the upcoming season.

Established clubs like Nouadhibou FC, the reigning champions, and AS Douanes, the runners-up, will face fresh challenges as they compete against the new entrants.

Football fans are eagerly awaiting to see how these Sudanese giants will fare in the Mauritanian league and whether they can disrupt the dominance of local powerhouses.

The next season of the Mauritanian Super D1 promises to be one of the most intriguing yet, with new technology, increased financial backing, and the inclusion of two historic clubs from Sudan.

This blend of innovation and tradition is set to create a captivating narrative for the league, offering fans a thrilling and competitive football season.

CAF’s decision to allow Al Hilal Ondurman and Al Merrikh to participate in the Mauritanian Super D1 marks a significant milestone in African football.

This move is expected to enhance the league’s competitiveness, attract greater attention, and provide a new platform for showcasing football talent in the region.

As the new season approaches, anticipation and excitement are building, setting the stage for a historic and memorable chapter in the Mauritanian Super D1.
