The competition was first known as the Arab Club Champions Cup, and established in 1982. In 2001, it merged with the Arab Cup Winners' Cup to form the new Prince Faisal bin Fahd Tournament for Arab Clubs, named after Faisal bin Fahd. Between 2003 and 2009, the competition was known as the Arab Champions League. In 2012 the competition was re-branded as the UAFA Club Cup in a partnership with World Sport Group.
