History[edit]

Al-Sharjah (Arabic: نادي الشارقة) is a United Arab Emirates professional football (soccer) club. It is based in Sharjah city. The home stadium is Sharjah Stadium. Al-Sharjah was established in 1966 under the name of Al-Orouba Club and in 1974 it merged with an existing club named Al-Khaleej (which was later reestablished) to become the main sports club in the emirate of Sharjah. Its name "Sharjah Sports and Culture Club" was officially registered in 1978.[citation needed]

Al-Sharjah is embedded in UAE football history as it is the first winner of the official UAE football league in the 1973–1974 season. The club went on to win four more titles in the late 1980s and early 1990s in a period of great prosperity for UAE football. In a decade when the UAE qualified for the FIFA World Cup (ITALIA 90), Al-Sharjah supplied the national team with no less than nine players which helped in promoting the club and creating supporter groups across the country.

The club is also nicknamed "The King", as it holds the record for the most President's Cup winner with 8 victories, the first in 1978/1979 and the last in 2002/2003.
