Al Wasl Football Club (Arabic: نادي الوصل لكرة القدم‎) is a United Arab Emirates Football League club based in Dubai. It is a part of the multi-sports club Al Wasl Sports Club. Al Wasl is one of the most successful clubs in the UAE in all sports, therefore it has one of the largest fan bases in the Arabian Peninsula. For that Al Wasl has formed the first Ultras group in the UAE, Ultras Junoon. Former Argentine national team player and manager Diego Maradona was the manager of the club, with an annual salary of 3.5 million euros plus a private jet at his disposal until he was sacked in July 2012.[2]


  • The Club of the 20th Century in the UAE: Due to Al Wasl's impressive performance in the Continental Tournaments last century (5 wins and one loss), the IFFHS has decided to name Al Wasl as the UAE's Club of the 20th Century.[3]
