Created in 1992, the CAF African Super Cup is a one-off match that pitches the winner of the CAF Champions League against the champion of the CAF Confederation Cup.
From history, often the hosts of the African Super Cup (winners of the CAF Champions League) have claimed the title largely due to the support of the home crowd.
It is only on three occasions that the winner of the CAF Champions League has failed in that quest (Until 2004, it was the winner of the CAF Cup Winners’ Cup that played against the CAF Champions League champions for the CAF Super Cup).
This includes the maiden edition in 1992 between Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco and Ivorian side, Africa Sports.
The match held in Abidjan, a venue which was fixed when the finalists were not even known. The Ivorian side, then holders of the CAF Cup Winners’ Cup edged the Moroccans 5-3 on penalties after a 2-2 draw on penalties.
It was only in 1995 that CAF decided to host the CAF Super Cup on the grounds of the CAF Champions League holders.
