HistoryEdit

Al-Qasim Club was founded in 1973 by a group of young athletes. The team have been in the Iraq Division One for many years and have not been able to qualify for the Premier League due to lack of financial support and lack of a good stadium.[1]

In the 2015–16 season, the team strengthened their ranks with good players[2] and was about to qualify for the Premier League, but finished second behind Al-Bahri in Elite Stage, and Al-Bahri qualified.[3] As well as in the 2017–18 season, but they finished second behind Erbil in Final stage, and Erbil qualified.[4]

Al-Qasim managed to win the 2018–19 Iraq Division One and qualify for the 2019–20 Iraqi Premier League for first time,[5] and chose Al Kifl Stadium to have them a playground for their Premier League matches.[6]

Al-Qasim won the 2018–19 Iraq Division One title after defeating Zakho in the final penalty shootout 4–1, after the match with a draw in the full time.[7]
