Egypt - List of Champions


Cairo League

A league for Cairo was first organised in 1922/23 by the Cairo Football Board, under the name Cairo Zone Competition. In 1938, the Egypt FA took over the organisation, together with three other regional leagues (Alexandria, Bahary and Canal). From 1948 to 1953 the Cairo League was held in parallel with the new nationwide league championship before being discontinued (it was held once more in 1957/58 but then stopped again).
