During its meeting held on Tuesday, 24 May 2016 in Cairo, Egypt; the CAF Organising Committee for Interclub Competitions ruled on the new format of the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup. 

The two competitions, as announced by CAF President Issa Hayatou at the 38th CAF Ordinary General Assembly in Mexico City, will have 16 clubs at the group stage effective next year.

After the preliminary round, 32 teams will qualify for the 1/16th round in both competitions. 

The winners of the 1/16th round in the CAF Champions League, will after the drawing of lots, be divided into four groups of four teams each. After a round-robin of matches (home and away), the first two of each group will qualify for the quarter-finals, which opens a new phase of knockout matches till the final. Clubs finishing top of each group will host the second leg of the quarterfinals.

For the CAF Confederation Cup, the 16 teams qualified after the 1/16th round will engage the losers from the 1/16th round of the CAF Champions League to decide on the 16 teams for the group stage. Thereafter, the format remains same as the CAF Champions League.
 
CAF now have 20 calendar dates for club competitions that will go from March to November for the CAF Champions League and until December for the CAF Confederation Cup.
