The rankings of the eight qualified teams were achieved on the performance of the last five editions (2009-2013). The rankings for the Orange CAF Confederation Cup are:
Al Ahly (Egypt), Coton Sport ( Cameroon ), AC Leopards (Congo), Sewe Sport (Côte d'Ivoire), Etoile Sportive du Sahel (Tunisia), ASEC Mimosas (Cote d’Ivoire), AS Real ( Mali ) and Nkana ( Zambia).
In Pot 1 are Ahly and Coton Sport and the first team drawn will go to Group A and the other in Group B.
The same will be done for Pot 2 (AC Leopards, Sewe Sport), Pot 3 (Etoile du Sahel, ASEC Mimosas) and Pot 4 (AS Real, Nkana).
A draw will be made to assign a coefficient (A1, B1, A2 ...) to establish the order of the matches.
The procedure is identical to that of the Orange CAF Champions League where the rankings of the club are as follows; Esperance Sportive de Tunis (Tunisia), TP Mazembe (DR Congo), Club Sportif Sfaxien (Tunisia), Al Hilal (Sudan), Zamalek (Egypt), Entente Setif (Algeria) , AS Vita Club (DR Congo) and Ahly Benghazi ( Libya).
Pot 1: Esperance Sportive de Tunis, TP Mazembe
Pot 2: CS Sfaxien, Al Hilal
Pot 3: Zamalek, Entente Setif
Pot 4: AS Vita, Ahly Benghazi
