Nasr Athlétique de Hussein Dey (Arabic: نصر رياضي حسين داي‎), known as NA Hussein Dey or NAHD for short, is an Algerian football club based in Hussein Dey, Algiers. Their home stadium is Stade Frères Zioui. The club currently plays in the Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1, the top tier of Algerian football.


The 15 June 1947 to Leveilley coffee Kaddour (now Maqaria), 180 members met to decide on the merger of three clubs of Hussein Dey: Nedjma Sports Hussein Dey, the Ideal Club Cooler and Esperance Sportive de Leveilley The athletic Nasr Hussein Dey was born.

The Nasria is a club that was blessed at the time by the Sheikh Larbi Tbessi. A club that has been active during the war of liberation, and had its share of suffering, pain and of course, its share of martyrs, who responded to the call for 1956/1957 for stop sports clubs Algerians, the NAHD ceased all activity and did not resume until after the country's independence in 1962. Champion Algiers in 1963, he won his only championship of Algeria in 1967.

In 35 years of presence at the highest level of national football, NAHD is mounted on the podium ten times in the league and won an Algerian Cup in 1979. The team also played a final of the African Cup Winners' Cup the same year.

The Nasria is known for its training policy advocated by renowned coaches: Fez René Vernier Reynolds Ammar Boudissa and Jean Snella. This policy was responsible for the emergence of a generation of exceptional players who formed the backbone of the Algerian team in the Spanish World in 1982.

Among the iconic players of the club we quote Defnoun Abdelkader Ouchen Bouyahi Youcef Khedis Merzekane Fergani El Hocine Aït Lazazi Alliche.

Halliche with NAHD

Special mention to Madjer who had the chance to play abroad and that made a world career with the FC Porto especially. Not to mention Mahmoud Guendouz which is the Algerian player who has the most significant playing time in final phase of World Cup (540 min). The season 2008, the NAHD became the first Algerian club to move a player to a club in Europe: center-back Rafik Halliche in this case, recruited by Benfica. Halliche will break the record Guendouz by playing seven matches (700 minutes) of the team of Algeria in the last two editions of the World Cup (2010 and 2014).

Nahdiste The school has trained a galaxy of talented players such as Zarabi Guenoun Bouchefra and many others. But the club's training policy also has perverse effects. Every year, the club does not have a large budget, is bled of its best features. The last three years, we could consider that the workforce is redesigned each "transfer window" or each semester.

Finally we will finish by quoting the presidents that marked the club's history: Benyoucef Bensiam Slimane Hoffman.
