Al-Khor was unofficially established in 1951 by oil workers to fulfill them with the appropriate facility to invest their energy after their participation with the multinational oil companies at the time. In 1961, the club was re-established and set football as its main sport, along with other sports and activities. There were two other clubs in Al Khor, but none of the clubs cooperated. In 1962, Al-Khor SC merged with Al-Jeel Sports Club, one of the other clubs.[2]

In 1964, they conglomerated with Nahdi Al-Aswad (transliterated to "Black Sports Club") and had formally made a request to join the Qatar Football Association on 10 June later that year. From then on, the club was known as Al-Taawun.[3]

Post-merger (1964–2004)Edit

The club took advantage of the youth movement and was provided with funds for all facilities. He designed plans and programs to increase the number of participants in the majority of sports. Since 1961, yellow and white were the club colors. In 1964 the club entered the football league and changed the colors to blue and white. Currently, all three colors are included in the crest.[2]

Renaming to Al Khor (2004–present)Edit

In 2004, the club name was changed to Al Khor after the Qatar Olympic Committee had ordered the name change to clarify the location of the club.[2]
