The International Federation of Football History & Statistics, (IFFHS), an organization that chronicles the history and records of association football, has ranked African leagues for 2012 according to their strengths.

The world ranking for the strongest national leagues is determined annually by the IFFHS on the basis of all national (championship, FA Cup) and (inter)continental (confederations & FIFA club competitions) results of the clubs.

The Sudanese Premier League emerged the strongest league in Africa after three clubs made it to the Group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.

El Merreikh topped Group A and was followed by El Hilal in second place but El Ahly Shandy finished at the foot of the table in the same pool.

The Tunisian Ligue 1 is second strongest and 42nd in the annual world ranking followed by Mali, Morocco and Nigeria.

With no competition taking place in Egypt since January 2012, the country’s Premier League is ranked 91st in the world.

Top ten African Leagues:
35. (1) Sudan
42. (2) Tunisia
45. (3) Mali
56.(4) Morocco
60. (5) Nigeria
65. (6) Ghana
