Merowe are staging the first round, first leg match set for Friday in the port city of Suez, Egypt as Sudan lacks a fitting stadium to host it.
The aggregate winner of the two-legged tie moves to the second round of the group stage qualifiers where they will be paired against teams dropping from the Champions League first round.
Gor Mahia last graced the monied stage of the second tier continental competition in the 2019 – reaching the quarter finals.
Subsequent attempts to scale the heights have not worked with the team’s potential being hit by perennial financial challenges.
