Founded in 1962, when Algeria became an independent nation, the league has a long history. Until 1950, there were only regional leagues (Algiers, Constantine, Oran). There were a few 'national' playoffs in the first decade of the 20th century. The first one took place in 1904. Together with Moroccan and Tunisian league winners, the winners played off for the North African Championship between 1920 and 1956.
In an effort to reflect the professionalization of the league, the FAF announced on 21 August 2010 that the league's name would be changed to Ligue Professionnelle 1.
