HistoryEdit

Al-Kahrabaa Sports Club was founded on 21 July 2001 by the Ministry of Electricity.[1] They were promoted to the Iraqi Premier League for the first time for the 2004–05 season[2] where they remained until they got relegated to the Iraq Division One in 2013. They were promoted back to the Premier League at the first attempt[3] under coach Shaker Mahmoud,[4] where they have remained since. During the 2017–18 season, Al-Kahrabaa finished fifth, their best season in history.[5]

Al-Kahrabaa reached the final of the 2018–19 Iraq FA Cup for the first time in their history after beating Al-Talaba 3-0 in the semi-finals,[6] but lost the final against Iraqi giants Al-Zawraa 1-0 at the national Al-Shaab Stadium.[7]

Club logo controversyEdit

At the start of their history, Al-Kahrabaa used a badge that was very similar to the one used by Defensor Sporting, a club based in Montevideo.[8]
