The North African Cup was a football competition involving the then French territories of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia from 1930 to 1956. The tournament was contested between the clubs of five leagues, with Morocco and Tunisia contributing one league each, and Algeria contributing leagues from the districts of Algiers, Constantine and Oran. In 1956 the cup was cancelled as Morocco and Tunisia both became independent of France in that year and left the cup. Another competition was created called the Algerian Cup (colonial period) which is concerned only the tree Algerian leagues before independence.
