Ahead of the draw for the CAF Confederation Cup, Uganda’s representatives are now aware they can face any of the other 15 opponents in the group stage.
The draw takes place at CAF Headquarters in Cairo on Wednesday afternoon but the continent’s governing body has only seeded four teams.
The seeded teams are giants TP Mazembe of DR Congo, Tunisia’s CS Sfaxien, Zambia’s Zesco United and Morocco’s FUS Rabat and are placed in Pot One.
All the rest of the teams, including Uganda’s KCCA that eliminated Egypt’s El Masry in the playoff are in pot TWO.
Only five of the 16 teams in group stages have accumulated points in the CAF 5-Year Ranking points, the reason the Confederation couldn’t have more pots.

Mike Mutebi’s charges are however assured of playing against one of TP Mazembe, Zesco United, CS Sfaxien or FUS Rabat who are the seeded teams.
The Kasasiro are the first Ugandan side to play in the group stages of the competition since change of format.
