The club was founded in 1953 by a group of workers from TAAG's predecessor DTA. Mr. Jacinto Medina was the first chairman.

Before Angola's independence, the club was known as Atlético Sport Aviação [1]. After independence, it was called Desportivo da TAAG, named after its major sponsor, the Angolan Airlines. In 1992, the club's name was reverted to its original ASA.

The club won its first title, the Angolan Cup, in 1995. Two players from ASA represented Angola at their first World Cup in 2006: Jamba and Love.
