1 Invincible Eleven withdrew.

3 Tusker FC were ejected from the competition and fined $5000 after Kenyan immigration officials refused the appointed match officials for the first leg entry into the country.
4 Wallidan FC and FC Civics withdrew before the draw was made.
Note: Clubs from the Central African Republic, Kenya, Liberia and Sierra Leone were disqualified for failure to fulfil their financial obligations, and clubs from Somalia, Djibouti, São Tomé and Príncipe and Malawi were disqualified three months earlier.[1]
