Played between the winners of the African and Asian Champions Cups. Years in the palmares list do not always correspond to the years when matches were played. If the year Y is given in the palmares list, the final was between the African Champions Cup winners of Y-1 and the Asian Champions Cup winners of the season Y-1/Y.
The competition was discontinued following a CAF decision on July 30, 2000, after AFC representatives had supported Germany in the vote for hosting the 2006 World Cup rather than South Africa.
Since FIFA admitted all continental club champions to their Club World Championship, the champions of Africa and Asia have met on a seven occasions, with the Asian representatives winning six times.
