Ghanaian league champions Hearts of Oak SC will host Guinean side CI Kamsar in a single game on September 19 2021 at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The first leg encounter was scheduled to come off in Guinea on September 12 but had to be canceled due to the political unrest in the country.

Where appropriate, the Organizing Committee will determine the match venue.” The winner of this single match will qualify to the 2nd preliminary round of the competition. In case of a draw at the end of the regulatory time, the winner shall be determined by penalty kicks in accordance to the Laws of the Game”.
