The whites-only Ligue de Football du Katanga was founded in Elisabethville (now Lubumbashi) 1911, and the 1925 edition of the local championship (called the B. Smith Cup) comprised 4 clubs (apparently this was the first official edition).
For the (known) champions of the 'black' Elisabethville Football Association (FASI, Fédérations et Associations Sportives Indigènes), see Congo-Kinshasa - Regional Champions.
A Katanga representation organised by the FASI played in a 'sub-Saharan championship 1950'.
