USM Oran in 1939

The USM Oran was founded during the French colonial period on 1 March 1926 in the Medina Jedida quarter of Oran by the Algerian nationalist Sadek Boumaza with Bendouba "El Fellous", Benkoula, Boumefraa and others. They decided to create a team which became a multi-sports club some days after its creation. The club is the first one of North Africa to put the word Musulmane (English: Muslim) in its name to differentiate from other European colonial teams.[1]
