Sporting Club Bel-Abbès




Sidi Bel Abbès is situated to the south of the port of Oran in Algeria. It was in Oran that football was first played in north Africa, with  Club Athlétique Oranais (later Club Athlétique Liberté Oranais ) being founded in 1897.
Clubs from different regions of North Africa played each other as early as 1904.
 SC Bel-Abbès was founded in 1906.
Football in Algeria came under the auspices of L'Union des sociétés françaises de sports athlétiques (USFSA). In 1910 the  USFSA  instituted an African Championship for clubs from various parts of Algeria and Tunisia. The results  of these early 'African' championships are largely unknown.
In 1920 the  Ligue d'Oran was formed.
