Warri Wolves

The Nigeria Professional Football League teams will face opponents from Tunisia and Ethiopia in the first round of the 2015 Caf Confederation Cup. Dolphins will face Tunisian outfit, Club Africain, in the first round of the 2015 Caf Confederation Cup. The fixtures for the 12th Caf Confederation Cup first round had earlier been drawn on 22 December, 2014 at the Caf headquarters in Cairo before the preliminary round of the competition. The Port Harcourt outfit will travel to Tunisia to face the 2011 Confederation Cup runners-up, who were drawn in the preliminary round for the first leg, before hosting them in the return leg two weeks later. While another Nigerian representative Warri Wolves, who thrashed RC Bobo Dioulasso 4-0 on aggregate, will take on Ethiopian Premier League winners Dedebit in the first round of the competition. The Seasiders will host the Ethiopians, who advanced after a 5–2 aggregate win against Ivorian outfit Côte d’Or, in the first leg in Warri before traveling to Addis Ababa for the return leg in a fortnight. The first leg matches will be played in the weekend of March 13th-15th, while the second leg games will be played in the weekend of  3rd-5th April, 2015. No Nigerian side has ever lifted the Caf Confederation Cup since its name was changed from the Caf Cup Winners Cup in 2003.
