CAF acknowledge Al Ahly as the most decorated club in the world
La Gazetta dello Sport has previously recognized Al Ahly as the club which dispatched Italian team AC Milan as the most decorated team.
On their website, CAF stated that by beating Sfaxien 3-2 in Cairo and claiming its 6th CAF Super Cup, Al Ahly have added a 19th international trophy to their cabinet – one more than AC Milan and Boca Juniors.
Al Ahly’s international titles:
– Eight (8) CAF Champions League (1982,1987,2001,2005,2006,2008,2012,2013)
– Four (4) CAF Cup Winners’ Cup (1984,1985,1986,1993)
– Six (6) CAF Super Cup (2002,2006,2007,2009,2013,2014)
– One (1) Afro-Asian Cup (1988)
CAF President Issa Hayatou believes that Al Ahly’s historical achievement has put Africa under the spotlight, saying: “Congratulations to Al Ahly on this historic achievement. CAF is proud of this record that puts Africa on the world map yet again.”
“This is positive sign that African football has come of age and it will encourage other clubs to do more,” Hayatou stated.
Such an achievement had Al Ahly’s marketing team thinking about modifying the club’s badge.
Ali Abd El Moneim, Al Ahly’s marketing manager said: “We will send the board a suggestion to alter Al Ahly’s crest after reaching 19 titles.”
