The Islamic Republic of Iran and Saudi Arabia’s Football Federations have reached an agreement to repeat the canceled soccer match between Sepahan and Al-Ittihad in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League.

The Saudi Pro League champions Al-Ittihad refused to play Iran's Sepahan on October 2 and the match was cancelled.

The match was set to be held at Naghsh-e Jahan Stadium in Iran’s central city of Isfahan where approximately 60,000 fans gathered to watch the Asian Champions League clash between the two teams.
