CAF Rules and Regulations for Champions League

Written By Themba Khumalo on Friday, September 13, 2013 | Friday, September 13, 2013

Let me cause a big debate and believe me, I am right as per CAF rules and regulations.

A team that wins the CAF Champions League automatically qualifies to defend its trophy the following season irrespective of whether they are Champions of their domestic league or not.

With that said, should Orlando Pirates win CAF Champions League, they will automatically be playing in the Champions League again in the next campaign.

NB: As per CAF's ruling, only one South African team can participate in the CAF Champions League per season until one South African team does excellently well in that tournament to pave a way for the second team, if that happens, the second team can join after a season, meaning its only after next season that we will see two South African teams in CAF Champions League.

Should Pirates win CAF, Kaizer Chiefs won’t participate in CAF Champions League next season, but Pirates will despite Chiefs being the defending champions domestically. In fact Chiefs will be in CAF Confederations Cup as Nedbank Champions.
