Association Sportive d'Arta Solar 7 compete in Championnat de Djibouti de football, the top tier of football in Djibouti and are based in the town of Arta in south-eastern Djibouti. The club was founded in 1980 as AS CDE/Arta and were sponsored by Chemin de Fer Djibouto-Éthiopien (C.D.E.), also known as Ethio-Djibouti Railways. AS Arta have often been one of the top clubs in Djibouti, having won the league title 6 times (in 1988, 2000, 2005, 2007, 2021 & 2022) as well as the Coupe de Djibouti 8 times, including recent titles in 2019, 2020, 2021 & 2022. In 2018 the club was acquired by prominent businessman Tommy Tayoro Nyckoss, the owner of a vast network of businesses, including solar panel company Solar 7. In November 2020, AS Arta announced one of the biggest shock transfers in the history of African football with the signing of former Arsenal and Barcelona star Alex Song. Since then, they have added fellow African legends Salomon Kalou, Alain Traoré & Carlos Kameni to the squad, with the club having dominated the domestic competitions in Djibouti in recent years. Considering that Arta is just the 6th largest town in Djibouti with a population of only 11,000, it is truly remarkable that they have been able to attract such high-profile stars to play in one of Africa’s smallest countries.
