Ajman History

Ajman was established back in 1974, with the 10th ruler of the Emirate of Ajman standing as the chairman. The team took part in the first-ever season of the UAE Pro League in 1973/1974, but they crashed out. They have never won the coveted title and have been moving between the UAE Pro League and the First Division since then. Nonetheless, they have other trophies to their name.

Ajman won the UAE First Division League in 2016/2017, the UAE Vice President’s Cup in 2010, and the UAE League Cup in 2013. Another notable achievement for the club was winning the championship of the UAE President’s Cup in 1983/1984.

Some of the notable footballers who have played for Ajman include winger Vander Vieira and forward Yorleys Mena. Abdul Wahab Abdul Qadir is Ajman’s most successful manager.
