Asante Kotoko will kick-off their Champions League campaign against Barrack Young Controllers following a CAF draw held in Marrakech, Morocco on Monday.

The Ghanaian champions will host the Liberian side in the first leg of the preliminary tie on the weekend of February 7-9 2013.

Kotoko look to make a more meaningful impact in the next edition of the competition following their poor showing last term.

The Porcupine Warriors will look to capitalize on their home support to record a favourable result in the first leg before travelling to face BYC in the return leg.

Kotoko were eliminated from the penultimate qualifying round by Algerian side JSM Bejaia in the just ended edition of the competition which was won by Egyptian club Al Ahly.
