REPORTS coming out from CAF headquarters in Cairo say 3 countries have pulled out of the 2021/2022 Champions League and Confederation Cup. The Countries are Lesotho, Cape Verde, and Mauritius and are said to have sent their letter of withdrawal to the football governing body, CAF. In the meantime, no Nigeria club has qualified for the CAF Clubs competitions, as the 2020/2021 Nigeria Professional Football League and the Aiteo/FA Cup are still at the quarterfinals stage. NPFL clubs, if they qualify, will know their opponent in the 2021/2022 preliminary round of the inter-club competitions if the leagues are concluded on time as CAF has announced August 15 as the tentative date for the draws while the first leg of the preliminary will start on September 10. The African soccer governing body May announced June 31 as the deadline for the submission of teams that will play in the competition by the member association. CAF had to change the date to July following complaints by some member nations who pleaded for more time because their leagues was yet to be concluded Nigerian Pilot Sports gathered that NPFL still has 5 matches to play to end the league and Aiteo Cup is also in the quarter final stage. Some other Africa countries have few match days to go but it remained uncertain if CAF will shift the date to enable clubs yet to qualify to participate.
