The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced next season’s dates for African Champions League and Confederation Cup.
The season will officially get underway on September 10 with the first round of qualifiers (preliminary rounds). The draw for the preliminary rounds will be held no later than August 15, CAF said in a statement.
While both competitions are expected to hold a second round of qualifiers in September/October, the Confederation Cup will hold its Second Preliminary Round, an additional round of qualifiers, in late November and early December.
CAF added that bids to host the finals of both tournaments will be opened in November.
