The 2017 FIBA Africa Club Champions Cup will commence on December 11 in Rades, Tunisia close to the end of the year.

The competition is due to end December 20 with a slew of the best performing teams on the continent set to compete for the title.

Several qualifiers have concluded in different zones on the continent and qualified teams will pitch camp in North Africa for the nine day tournament.

It will be the second straight year a city in the sub region hosts the championship following 2016’s edition held in Cairo, Egypt.

Defending Champions Al-Ahly of Egypt and last year’s first runner up Recreativo do Libolo has made it to the upcoming edition.

Competition in West Africa’s Zone 3 concluded on Saturday November 18 in Lagos, Nigeria with home duo Kano Pillars and Gombe Bulls securing qualification to Tunisia.

Ghana side Braves of Customs missed out on the qualifying spots to the Nigerian pair after falling in three straight games in the competition.

Pillars placed fourth at the African games in 2016.
