Name history

  • 1959: Founded as Al-Wakrah Youth Club
  • 1967: Changed name to Al-Wakrah Sport Club


Al Wakrah was founded in 1959,[1] and was officially legitimized in 1965 under the name of Al Wakrah Youth Club.[2] From that time, its football and handball sections were formed, with both participating in local competitions. It later changed its name to Al Wakrah Sports Club in 1967. Over the years, it branched out to many sports, including chess, basketball, and bowling.

The new club headquarters was constructed in 1984, and tennis and squash teams were also formed during this time in addition to its previously formed sports teams. They won the Qatari league twice, once in 1999 and again in 2001.
