The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has stepped in unprecedented territory in terms of squad numbers.
While both the CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup have previously allowed for 30 player registration from clubs, the new decision has increased that limit to no less than 40 footballers.
“CAF has increased the number for squad lists of participating clubs in the Champions League and Confederation Cup to 40 players instead of 30,” confirmed leading CAF journalist Nuhu Adams ahead of CAF’s official announcement this week.
This means that, Asante Kotoko who are representing Ghana in the CAF Champions League, as well as Ashantigold who are repping the country in the Confederation Cup, can now register 40 players each for the championships.
Meanwhile, African football will turn focus to the international week of 2021 AFCON Qualifiers this week.
