Competition’s format

The tournament takes place annually, and the number of participants varies from season to season. Traditionally, the top-12 CAF associations can send two teams to the tournament (these are the domestic leagues’ winners and runners-up). As for the other countries, they may be represented by their national champions only. So, a total of 68 clubs may participate in the competition. However, some countries usually refuse to send teams, so this number of participants is mostly theoretical.

The CAF Champions League draw consists of the 3 stages — the qualifiers, the group round, and the knockout stage. The qualifiers, in turn, consist of the preliminary and the 1st rounds.

In the preliminary round, teams play in pairs, and the winners proceed to the 1st round. Not all the clubs partake in this stage — some participants come to the 1st round directly. Regardless of the total number of participants, there are always 32 teams in the first round. They also play in pairs, and the strongest team of each pair advances to the group stage.

In the group stage, participants are evenly split between the 4 groups. After a double round-robin competition, played within each group, top-2 teams from every group proceed to the knockout stage. This stage consists of the quarter- and semi-finals, and the CAF Champions League final. 

In quarter-finals, every group’s winner plays with a runner-up of one of the opposite groups. The winners of this stage play in pairs in the semi-final. After that, the strongest two teams fight for the main trophy in the grandiose CAF Champions League final.

The CAF Champions League fixtures in all stages are double-legged. The tournament’s winner qualifies directly for the FIFA Club World Cup and is eligible to compete for the CAF Super Cup.
