HistoryEdit

The club was founded in Bab Souika which is one of the historic gates of the capital of Tunisia, Tunis on January 15, 1919. The club was named Taraji in Arabic after the name of the coffeehouse where the founders used to often meet each other. So far ES Tunis has 29 Tunisian League wins, 15 Tunisian Cups, and 4 Tunisian Supercups. At a continental level, the club has 4 CAF Champions League titles.[1]

In 2001, Espérance set a new Tunisian record by winning the national title four years in a row, beating the previous record of three, set by Italia de Tunis in 1937.[2] They extended this run to seven consecutive titles in 2004.[2]
