The competition was founded at the beginning of 1975 by the Confederation of African Football, following the example of the UEFA in Europe, the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. For the first edition, fifteen teams are registered and it is the Cameroonian club of Tonnerre Yaoundé who has the honor to enter the first name in the winners of the event, after defeating the Ivorians of the Stella Club d'Adjamé in final[1].
