Founded as the Nahda Sporting Club in 1924, it was not long before the club became best known for its football team, which enjoyed fantastic regional success.
They became the first Arabic and Egyptian club to win a continental title when the won the 1969 African Cup of Champions (now the Champions League) as they beat TP Mazembe in the decider, but they could not repeat that success in their second visit to the final in 2003 when they lost to Nigerian side Enyimba.
They won the 1969 tournament without a single defeat and legend has it that more than 150 000 turned up to watch the home leg of the final.
On the domestic front they have three Egyptian League titles to their name, in 1967, 1991 and 2001, while they have also won the Egyptian Cup on two occasions, 1997 and 2000.
It is a constant battle for the side to keep up with the financial clout of the Cairo giants Al Ahly and Zamalek, and they often lose their top players to the duo.
