History[edit]

Before the country's independence, there were several football competitions running on the same system as the Algeria Cup. When the France decided to develop the sport in the colonies, including football, settlers created a number of agencies for the promotion of the sport. To make it more attractive, several types of competitions' cutting So were born.

Colonial Period[edit]

It already existed at that time, in the late fifties, a similar competition called "Algeria Cup football", which was played solely between Algerian clubs but settlers. To get there, one must understand that this was the result of a long process of both sports, political and historical.

When football appeared in North Africa, it was not structured enough for organizing major football competitions. At the beginning of, small football challenges appear 1904 and 1905 and criterium in 1911 and 1912. These small competitions désignèrent unofficial champions because regulatory bodies came much later in France (USFSA in 1913 and FFFA in 1919) where chaos reigned for several football federations coexisted.

North Africa was then divided into five regions each had a football league. So we had the Morocco Football League Association or LMFA for Morocco; the League of Oran Football Association or LOFA for Oran ut; the Algiers League Football Association or LAFA for Algiers ois; the Constantine Ligue de Football Association or LCFA for Constantine; and Tunisian Football League Association or LTFA for Tunisia.

Each of these leagues organized football championships (between 1920 and 1959) on different levels including the highest honor was called Division (DH ). Meanwhile, a larger football competition appears during the year 1921 called North African Championship. This competition was governed by the Union of North African football leagues created the same year, and included all the champions of honor division of North African football leagues. The winner was crowned "Champion of North Africa" ​​and saw himself put an art object. It retained its trophy season and saw the honor of defending his due by being automatically qualified for the next edition accompanied by another club in the league.
