Gambia champions Wallidan have pulled out of this year's African Champions League for financial reasons, club officials said.

The club now face an automatic three-year ban for withdrawing from the competition, which the Confederation of African Football will ratify later this year.

Morocco's Ittihad Khemisset, who would have been Wallidan's first-round opponents, go through to meet Asante Kotoko of Ghana.
