El Kanemi to battle Dadje FC in CAF Confederation Cup prelims

Nigeria’s Federation Cup champions, El Kanemi Warriors, have been drawn against Benin Republic’s Dadje FC in the 1st preliminary round of the 2024/25 CAF Confederation Cup campaign. 

The draw took place at the CAF Headquarters in Cairo, Egypt, with 40 clubs competing for a spot in the 2nd preliminary round.

El Kanemi Warriors, recently promoted to the Nigeria topflight league, will face a challenging encounter against Dadje FC, who narrowly missed out on the Benin Republic topflight league title. If they overcome this hurdle, they will face a strong test against Morocco’s RS Berkane in the next round.
