The club was founded in 1937 and its colours are red and black. Their venue, the Stade Omar Hammadi, has a capacity of some 10,000.

USM Alger are one of the most successful clubs in Algeria, having won the Algerian Championnat National 5 times and the Algerian Cup a record 7 times.

History

In May 1937, a group of friends brimming with nationalism came up with the idea of creating a club. The group was made up of Kamel Kemmat, Ali "Lahmar" Zaïd, Ali Slimani, Saïd Bennour, Arezki Meddad and Sid Ali Terkmane. Two months later, on July 5, 1937, the club was founded with its headquarters located at Rue du Divan, now known as Rue Abdelkader Aoua, in the Casbah neighborhood of Algiers. Along with the original members, the group was joined by Abdelkader Amrani, Omar Hamza, Omar Lakehal, Mohamed Ouali Basta, Mohamed Zennagui and Ali Cherifi. Arezki Meddad was selected as the first president of the club.
