Ismaily (Arabic: النادي الإسماعيلي الرياضي ; transliterated: El Nady ElIsmaily El Reyady) is a Sporting club, established in 1924 as Nahda Sporting Club, based in Ismaïlia, Egypt. The club is best known for its football team. And it is famously known in Africa as the Africa ٍSamba Boys.
Ismaily SC won the Egyptian Football League in 1967, 1991 and 2002, as well as the Egyptian Cup in 1997 and 2000. In 1969 the club won the CAF Champions League. It reached the final of the Champions League again in 2003, but lost to Enyimba FC of Nigeria.
Also Ismaily is well-known with the skillful players & with the enjoyable soccer but without scoring championships. Ismaily continues to face difficult circumstances in building and maintaining a team in a country where most of the population cheers for one of the two giants. Ismaily's superstar players often end up at one of the two giants, with or against the club's will. For example, Al Ahly's current starting lineup currently has four of Ismaily's 2002 league-winning players (Mohamed Barakat, Islam el Shater, Ahmed Fathi, and Emad el Nahas).
