Sports information.. The history of the first African Champions League and its champion Oryx of Cameroon

The African Champions League, in which the league title-holders, in addition to the league runners-up in the best 12 associations, participate. Its first edition was held in 1964, and was won by the Cameroonian Oryx Douala team.

Oryx Club entered history as the first club to win the African Champions League in the first championship in 1964, but it is the only African championship in the record of this club and completely disappeared from the advanced roles of the African championships.

The African Champions League was previously known as the African Cup of Champions Clubs, and the tournament system and its name have changed since 1997, and the Ismaily team is the first Egyptian team to win the championship in 1969.

The Ismaili club won the African title for the only time in its history after defeating Engelbert of TP Mazembe, after a positive tie with two goals for each in the first-leg match that was held in Kinshasa, while the Dervishes defeated the opponent in Cairo with three goals to one, bringing the total of the two matches 3/5

Then Al-Ahly won the first African title on December 12, 1982 in the Ghanaian city of Kumasi, in the presence of Ghanaian President Jerry Rawlings, when the Red Genie tied with Asante Kotoko with a goal for each team.

Egyptian clubs have won the African Champions League 15 times in their history, and the African title has been crowned by Ismaily once, Zamalek 5 times, and Al-Ahly 9 times.
