Mayotte - List of Champions
Football was introduced to the island (then still part of the Comoros) in the late thirties
by employees from Madagascar. In Labattoir, occasional matches were played between
a team of local youths and one with players from Madagascar.
After the British Army (in particular the Royal Air Force) arrived in 1943, there
were matches between locals (including
players originating from Madagascar) and British army teams.
After the British left in 1946, clubs were created in Pamandzi (Stella Sport), Combani
and M'tsapéré, who met each other on multiple occasions although there was
no organisational structure.
Between 1950 and 1962, Mayotte selections played in so called Triangulaire
tournaments with selections from Grande Comore and Anjouan (Mohéli did not have a
team at the time). The first edition was played December 1950 on Anjouan;
the second 1951 in Moroni (Grande Comore) and the third 1952 on Mayotte;
Mayotte won three consecutive editions from 1951 to 1953. After the 1962
edition, in which Mohéli played, the tournament was discontinued due to
fan violence and logistical problems.
In the sixties, clubs were founded in
Labattoir (Enfant de Mayotte, Luna Sport), Pamandzi (Volcan), Sada (AS Sada),
M'zoizia (Jumeaux), Dzaoudzi (Duc de collège), and M'tsapéré (Kouka), and grounds
appeared in Baobab, Combani and Pamandzi.
In 1964 the Comité du football de Mayotte was established and existed until
1975, the year in which Comoros (Anjouan, Grande Comore and Mohéli) obtained
independence while Mayotte remained French. Between 1970 and 1973 a
tournament between the island champions was organised by the
Ministère des Sports du Gouvernement des Comores, in which Rafale
and Soleil de Labattoir represented Mayotte. The tournament was discontinued
in 1973, again because of fan violence.
Between 1976 and 1978 football on Mayotte was organised by the
Comité des Sports, until the creation of the Ligue de Mayotte
in 1978, an affiliate of the FFF.
Many new clubs were founded in the seventies and eighties in
Labattoir (Comète, Avenir, Onze Rapid), M'tsapéré (Eclair, Espoir, FCM),
Mamoudzou (TCO), Passamainty (Rosador), Sada (Etoile Polaire),
Bouéni (Miracle du Sud), Pamandzi (Olympic) and elsewhere.
