Ghana Premier League champions FC Samartex have been drawn against Cameroon’s Victoria United in the first round of the 2024/25 CAF Champions League preliminary round.

The draw for the preliminary rounds of the competition took place on Thursday 11th July, with Samartex being in pot 3 prior to the draw.

The Samreboi-based side secured a place in the Champions League after their victory at the end of the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League season, beating Accra Lions to win the league title.

The first task for the Timber giant is against Victoria United, the winner of the Cameroonian league.

Nurudeen Amadu’s team will travel to Cameroon for the first leg and then return home for the return leg.

The first qualifying round matches are scheduled for August 16-25.

If Samartex beat Victoria United at the end of the two matches, they will face either AS GNN from Niger or Raja Club Athletic from Morocco in the second phase of the qualifiers.

The dates for the second round are scheduled for September 13-22.

Samartex are making their first appearance in the CAF competition and are hoping to reach the group stage before going one step further than Medeama SC, who were already eliminated in the group stage.
