The 1985–86 Iraqi National League was the 12th season of the competition since its foundation in 1974. Unlike the previous season, each win was worth two points rather than three. Al-Talaba won their third league title out of the past five completed seasons, finishing two points ahead of Al-Rasheed with only a single loss.
