CAF CONFED. CUP: Asante Kotoko get new opponent
Ghana Premier League heavyweights, Asante Kotoko have been handed a walk-over to the round 1/16th of the CAF Confederations Cup after the game with Cameroon side Edding Sports was cancelled.
Africa’s football governing body called off the fixture following the late submission of a club by the Federations of Cameroonian Football (FECAFOOT).
Edding Sport were supposed to represent Cameroon in the CAF Confederations Cup after winning the 2016/17 Ligue 1.
And this comes after Asante Kotoko refused to push the fixture to a future date.
Edding Sports were supposed to play Lion Blesse in the Cameroon FA Cup final for a ticket to the competition.
However, with the final being played just three days to face Kotoko, Edding Sports were elected to represent Cameroon.
ℹ: Matches #37&38 are cancelled, because the deadline for @FecafootOfficie 🇨🇲 to confirm the engagement of second rep. for Total CAF Confederation Cup has elapsed. Asante Kotoko 🇬🇭 is therefore qualified to the 1/16th round.#TotalCAFCC
