Format[edit] Only runners-up of the domestic leagues of member associations were eligible to participate in the competition if and only if they were not participating as cup winners of their national associations cup competitions in the African Cup Winners' Cup. In case the runner-up of the domestic league was not to participate in the CAF Cup, CAF approval was mandatory to accept another team among the top three placed teams of the concerned association to take part in the competition. All rounds of the competition including the final were played according to the knock-out system of two legs tie. The team which scores a higher aggregate number of goals in the two matches was qualified for the next round.[1] History[edit] The tournament was founded in 1992 modeled after the European UEFA Cup. Trophy named after Moshood Abiola, a Nigerian businessman, publisher and politician as well as being the first Director of Sports in independent Nigeria. The CAF Cup

The competition was initiated soon after the successful 1992 African Cup of Nations in which twelve finalists participated in the competition for the first time in the history of the African competition. 31 teams participated in the first edition of the CAF Cup
