1. Al Ahly – Egypt – 1594 points – The Best Football Club in Africa
Al Ahly was founded in 1907 and has never been relegated in its more than a century-long existence. They are considered the most successful Egyptian football club with 38 national titles and 35 national cups.
Internationally they have also done very well with a record 8 CAF Champions League titles (most recently in 2012 and 2013). They are also the record holders in the African Cup Winners’ Cup with 4 wins and the CAF Super Cup with another 6 wins (last wins in 2013 and 2014).
Further, they also won the CAF Confederations Cup in 2014.
Al Ahly is considered the best football club in Africa. Not only because of their prized history, but also because of their recent results. However, TP Mazembe is certainly not far behind and is arguably the most successful African club of the last few years.
