MC Oran, Algerian champion in 1988

It was in the night of Tuesday, May 14, 1946, the event of the Muslim holiday "Leilat al-Mawlid al-Ennabaoui Echarif" (celebration of the birth of the prophet Muhammad), which meets five persons in the local area of Ali Bentouati in Lamur – (currently El-Hamri). They agree to found a club to be called Mouloudia Club of Oran. Among the founders, there were Ali Bentouati, Mohamed Bessoul, Omar Rouane Serrik, Boumefraa (one of the founders of USM Oran), and Mahmoud Sayah Miloud Bendraou (Mouloudia's first president of cyclism section), wealthy merchant in El-Hamri. The founding ceremony of Mouloudia was attended by Cheïkh Said Zamouchi, delegated by the influential Sheikh Si Tayeb Al-Mahaji member of Association des oulémas musulmans algériens.

The club has a great history, and especially during the golden years (70', 80' and the 90'), it have many great Algerian football players and even Africa, like Lakhdar Belloumi, Tedj Bensaoula, Karim Maroc, as well as children of the club for generations as Abdelkader Freha, Sid Ahmed Belkedrouci, Miloud Hadefi, Tahar Cherif El-Ouazzani, Abdelhafid Tasfaout ...etc.

During all this time, the club had won many national and international titles, it has nevertheless just managed to escape relegation twice.

The second time when MC Oran would escape relegation was in 1983. Curiously, the following season also, in 1984, won the Cup of Algeria with a new wave of talented young players such as Mourad Meziane, Tahar Cherif El-Ouazzani, Bachir Mecheri, Arezki Lebbah, led by Abdellah Mecheri, against DNC Algiers.
