Spain - List of Champions of North Africa

The "Federación de Futbol Hispano-Marroquí" was founded in 1931 by clubs from the towns of Ceuta and Melilla, the Spanish Protectorate of Morocco (extended over the northern half of the current Morocco), and the neutral place of Tanger, and organized the "Campeonato Hispano-Marroquí", later called "Campeonato Norte de Africa".

It was also a qualifying phase of the Spanish Cup, in spite of being one of the championships with a relatively low level.

Notes and name changes

1) Ceuta Sport changed its name to SD Ceuta in 1941.
2) Tetuán is currently the town of Tétouan in Morocco.
   In 1956 the Spanish Protectorate of Morocco joined the French Protectorate 
   in the new independent Kingdom of Morocco.  In order to retain Atlético's 
   place in the Spanish Second Division, Atlético Tetuán and SD Ceuta officially
   merged in the new club Atlético Ceuta, and established in Ceuta. On the 
   structures in Tetuan, a new club was formed, called Moghreb Tétouan.
