Uganda premier league champions SC Vipers has been drawn to face Sudan’s Al Hilal in the CAF Champions League preliminary round.
The Ugandan side will host the first leg at its St.Mary’s stadium between 27th to 29th November 2020 before the return between 4th to 6th December in Khartoum.
The winner will then progress to the first round and thereon to the lucrative group stages.
African giants like Zamalek, Al Ahly, TP Mazembe, and Mamelodi Sundowns are given a preliminary bye and will enter the fray in the first round.
SC Vipers has despite being a relatively ‘young’ club by African football standards, played continental football.
At the preliminary stage in the 2018/19 season, SC Vipers edged Sudanese giants Al Mereikh before being denied a group phase slot by Algeria’s CS Constantine.

Costa do Sol v Platinum Stars
