HistoryEdit

The multisports club was founded on April 14, 1894 by the European settlers in the neighbourhood El-Derb of Oran under the name of Club des Joyeusetés. The football section was created on July 10, 1897. The club was dissolved in 1962 after the independence of Algeria and the departure of the Europeans.

After the Independence of Algeria, the football section was resurrected in the 1990s in El-Derb by young Algerians from Oran under the name of Club de Derb Jeunesse, also called Club des Jeunes. Currently the club plays in the lower divisions of the league of Oran in Ligue of Oran - Group B.[1]
