South Sudan - List of Champions and Cup Winners


In Southern Sudan, the growth of football was linked with Christian missionaries who entered South Sudan in the early 1900s following the destruction of the Mahdist regime. Football was played at the Church Missionary Society's first Southern mission site at Malek and at Yei, where African and non-African participants competed. The Nugent missionary school dominated football in the region during the colonial years.
