Al-Mesaimeer Sports Club (Arabic: مسيمير‎‎) is a Qatari multi-sports club based in Mesaimeer. Its football department plays in the Qatari 2nd Division. It has never been promoted to the first league. It was previously known as Al-Nahda Sports Club, then Al-Shoala, and finally, today it is known as Mesaimeer Sports Club.


The club was unofficially formed in 1996 (under the name "Al-Nahda Sports Club"), located in Doha due to administrative and financial dependence of the Qatar Football Association.

In 1998 His Highness the former Heir Apparent Sheikh Jasim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, along with the Qatar National Olympic Committee, officially founded the club followed by the formation of a constituent general assembly and the election of a Board of Directors. In light of that period the club's name was changed to Al-Shoala.

In 2000, the construction of the club's official headquarters in the Mesaimeer area was completed under the supervision of National Olympic Committee, consisting of an administrative building, clothes changing rooms and a football field.

The Board of Directors' plans were re-examined to attract the local community to the club and form a base of players in all age groups starting from the juniors to the first team and provided facilities and services ranging from sports equipment and accessories to trainers, educators and advice from professional players.

The club began its participation in sporting events and the first team was runner-up in the second league numerous times. After a period of time, junior and youth players were playing against big teams and beating them, prompting the Board of Directors to show diligence and attention towards the younger players and acknowledge that they are the backbone of the club and its future. They shifted their resources towards them and trained them well and provided them with attention outside the club, assisting them in their school studies, in addition to support within the club, in hope that they will one day represent the first team. In the year 2004, due to the desire of the members of the club's founders and employees, the club changed its name from Al-Shoala to Al-Mesaimeer Sports Club, in accordance to the region of where the club and its headquarters are situated.
