Uganda Premier League’s reigning champion, Vipers Sports Club, has learnt their opponents at the 2023 CAF Champions League group stage.
Vipers will face three-time winners Raja Casablanca from Morocco, Horoya AC from Guinea, and Tanzania’s Simba SC in Group C of the 2022-2023 CAF Champions League. The action starts in February.
The Venoms qualified for the group stages for the first time after eliminating five-time champions TP Mazembe in the final qualification round, courtesy of a 4-2 penalty shootout victory.
Initially, the St. Mary’s Kitende side had dumped Olympic Real De Bangui in the first preliminary round via a 4-0 aggregate.
Vipers SC is guaranteed at least $550,000 (about Shs2 billion) in prize money.
