CAF allows Libya to enter 2 clubs in each of its competitions
For the first time in eight years, Libya will be able to enter two teams to each of the annual African club competitions.
The increase comes despite Libya’s domestic league being in turmoil because of the country’s security problems and their clubs being forced to host continental club competition matches at venues outside of the country.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has confirmed to the BBC that just one club from Nigeria will enter into the next Champions League and Confederation Cup.
This comes as Libya are up to ninth at CAF rankings of club competition results, while Nigeria has fallen out of top 12.
