Following their victory in the PSL last season, Kaizer Chiefs booked their place in the 50th edition of the CAF Champions League that will start in February.
It will be the first time that the Amakhosi have achieved qualification into the tournament since 2005, a year that they decided against participating.
After their withdrawal that year the club was consequently banned from taking part until 2009 and have not won the league since.
Now, after Stuart Baxter guided them to their first PSL title since the 2004/05 campaign, they are gearing up to take on Africa’s best when the 2014 CCL begins in February.
The 2013 edition of the tournament is still ongoing, with Chiefs’ bitter rivals, Orlando Pirates, currently into the group stages of the tournament as they attempt to secure their second victory on the continent.
Meanwhile, SuperSport United retained their spot in the CAF Confederations Cup after reaching the Nedbank Cup final and will also begin their African challenge in February as the CCC enters its 11th year.
