Al-Ahli Club is considered to be Al Najma's fiercest rival. The two teams contest the derby called The Capital's Derby. Both teams are considered to be the most decorated in the capital city. However, Al Najma fans are also known to have friendly relations towards Muharraq fans. Sometimes Al Najma fans could be spotted attending Muharraq matches and vice versa, when their own club is no longer in contention for the title.
