HistoryEdit

Al-Naft Sports Club was established in 1979 by the Ministry of Oil, and was officially registered in the Ministry of Youth and Sports in 1982[1]. In the 1985 season the team played in the Iraqi Premier League for the first time, and settled in the penultimate position in that season[2], and continued in the league since then and still plays in it so far. The club has not won a trophy in its 40-year existence[3], but they were runners-up of the Al-Nasr Wal-Salam Cup in 1996[4], the Durand Cup in 1996[5], the Iraqi Elite Cup in 1998[6], and the Iraqi Premier League in 2017[7], and qualified to play in the Arab Club Champions Cup. In the 2018–19 Arab Club Champions Cup, Al-Naft managed to overcome the Tunisian club: CS Sfaxien and expelled it from the championship and qualify for the round 16[8], but then lost to the Saudi club: Al-Hilal, and left the tournament.[9]
