The new Zimbabwean League champions, Motor action, coach Joey Antipas said that his team is thrilled about their first appearance in 2011 CAF Champions league.

"This is our first outing and for us, this is unknown territory," Antipas told cafonline.

Motor Action will host newcomers Cnaps of Madagascar in the preliminary round in January 29 at Rufaro Stadium in Harare.

"As for Cnaps, we don’t know much about them but one thing we know is that Madagascar has a very competitive league," Antipas said. "And there is no way we are going to take them lightly." He added.

Motor Action qualified for the 2011 African Champions League along with Dynamos as Zimbabwe are among 12 countries entitled on merit to two places in the premier CAF club championship.

Dynamos are a different pedigree and have been in the competition for sometime," he added.

Dynamos await the winner of the preliminary stage tie between Real de Bangui of Central Africa Republic and Moloudia Club d’Alger of Algeria.

"For us, the Champions League opens new doors," Antipas said." Our side is not a bad side but we will have trio beef up so that we can hold our own in the competition."
