The Amakhosi finished as runners-up in the 2013/14 Absa Premiership season which means they would convoy with Mamelodi Sundowns should the club decide to play in the tournament next year.

Also competing for continental glory are Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates who will take part in the CAF Confederations Cup for their third and fourth place finish.

With the competition commencing in February, the CAF rules and regulations stipulate that if a club should withdraw before the competition or until the quarter-final stage, the club would face a fine of $1500 (R16135.95).

The rules also specify that if a club withdraws after the fixtures are established, the team would face a ban of three years from CAF inter-club competitions.
