Tournaments[edit]

Pre-Season Matches & Friendlies[edit]

Germany Camp[edit]

Based on the success of the previous season's camp, Al Wasl FC picked Nuremberg, Germany again to hold its annual summer camp. The team flew to Germany on 15 July 2010 and played four friendly matches during the camp.[15]

The Dubai International Football Championship[edit]

Upon the return of the team from Germany, Al Wasl participated and hosted the Dubai International Football Championship which is a friendly mini-tournament held by the Dubai Sports Council in Zabeel Stadium. The other participants were Al-Ahli Dubai, Al-Wihdat Amman from Jordan, and Al-Merreikh from Sudan.[16] Zamalek SC of Egypt was supposed to participate but it apologized at the last minute.[17] The draw of the tournament was done on 12 August and Al Wasl played against Al-Merreikh on 16 August. The second match was against Al-Wihdat Amman on 19 August regardless the results of the first round as per the agreement of Al Wasl's coach Sérgio Farias and Al-Ahli's coach David O'Leary, their teams did not play against each other in the tournament due to having to play each other in the second round of the UAE Football League.[18] Al Wasl was crowned as the tournament's Champion after winning both its matches. Its player Mohammed Jamal was picked as the tournament's Most Valuable Player and the Goalkeeper Majed Nasser as the best goalkeeper with zero goals conceded.[19]

UAE President's Cup 2010–11[edit]

After a disappointing elimination from the Round of 16 in the previous season, Al Wasl is planning to put in a better display this season. Everything went as planned until the Semi-final against Al Wahda where Al Wasl FC conceded 2 goals in the first half, then failed to score more than one in the second half despite dominating the entire half. This was Al-Wasl's last chance to win an official tournament in the 2010–11 Season.

Etisalat Cup 2010–11[edit]

The Etisalat Cup is a gap-filler between the official tournaments. It does not involve the International Players. Al Wasl's performance was promising in the tournament, but it was eliminated in the semi-finals after losing to Al Ain 2–3 in a match that witnessed the Fastest Equalizer in the History of Football[20] scored by Fran Yeste.
