The CAF Super Cup (also known as African Super Cup or for sponsorhip reasons Orange CAF Super Cup) is an annual African association football competition contested between the winners of the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup. The competition was first held in 1993 and is organised by the Confederation of African Football (CAF). It is the continental equivalent of the UEFA Super Cup in European and Recopa Sudamericana in South American club football.

The competition was previously contested between the winners of the CAF Champions League (called African Cup of Champions Clubs from 1964 to 1996) and African Cup Winners' Cup until 2004 when the Cup Winners' Cup was discontinued. The last Super Cup in this format was the 2004 CAF Super Cup between Enyimba and Étoile du Sahel which Enyimba won 1 - 0. In 2004 the CAF Cup Winners' Cup was merged with CAF Cup into the newly established CAF Confederation Cup which acts as Africa's second-tier international club competition, (analogous to the UEFA Europa League in European football) and since 2005 the competition is contested in its current format.
