The 1995–96 Iraqi Advanced League was the 22nd season of the competition since its foundation in 1974. The name of the league was changed from Iraqi National League to Iraqi Advanced League. The league title was won by Al-Zawraa for the third consecutive time. They also won the Iraq FA Cup for the fourth consecutive time, meaning they won three doubles in a row. In this season, the rule of wins by three or more goals being rewarded four points was abolished; all wins were worth three points.[1]
