Format[edit]

The tournament consisted of five rounds preceding a two-legged final.

  • Preliminary round - The 12 lowest ranked teams - whose rankings were determined by their association's performances at previous CAF club tournaments - were drawn against each other in 6 matches consisting of two-legs each.
  • First round - The 6 winners from the preliminary round were then drawn against the remaining 26 clubs, resulting in 16 matches consisting of two-legs each.
  • Second round - The 16 winners from the first round were then drawn against each other, resulting in 8 matches consisting of two-legs each.
  • Quarter-finals - The 8 winners from the second round were then drawn against each other, resulting in 4 matches consisting of two-legs each.
  • Semi-finals - The 4 victorious quarter-finalists were then drawn against each other in 2 semi-finals consisting of two-legs each.
  • Final - The victorious semi-finalists contested a two-legged final to determine the champion.

The away goals rule was used to determine the victors in the event of a match being tied over the two-legs. If it was not possible to determine a winner using the away goals rule, the tie went to a penalty shootout to determine the winner.
