Asante Kotoko have secured qualification to the next stage of the 2018/2019 CAF Confederation Cup though yet to kick a ball.
This followed the inability by the Cameroonian Football Federation (FECAFOOT) to submit its second representative for the continent’s second-tier club competition.
FECAFOOT had held on too long to submit the side that joins New Star FC for the 2018/19 Cup.
A legal tussle is said to have delayed the submission of reps from the Central African nation.
A deadline given FECAFOOT elapsed on Friday, three days ahead of the originally scheduled first leg of the preliminary round of qualifiers.
ℹ: Matches #37&38 are cancelled, because the deadline for @FecafootOfficie ?? to confirm the engagement of second rep. for Total CAF Confederation Cup has elapsed. Asante Kotoko ?? is therefore qualified to the 1/16th round.#TotalCAFCC

Asante Kotoko will therefore stand by for the winner of the Kariobangi Sharks-Solar7 two-legged qualifiers.
