When the AFC Champions League was launched in August 2002, it was by no means the first Asian continental club competion. Indeed, there is a rich tradition of club competitions in the AFC, dating back to 1967 when the first Asian Club Championship was played. Over the years, Asian clubs competed against each other on a number of different fronts, namely the Asian Club Championship, the Asian Cup Winners' Cup and the Asian Super Cup. With the advent of the AFC Champions League, those competitions were merged into one major continental club tournament to truly determine Asia's best.

AFC Champions League 2006: Jeonbuk Motors (KOR)
AFC Champions League 2005: Al Ittihad (KSA)
AFC Champions League 2004: Al Ittihad (KSA)
AFC Champions League 2002/03: Al Ain (UAE)
