Al-Nasr History

Al-Nasr was started in 1945 by a group of young men on a plot of land owned by Mohammed Ali Zainal. Three years later, the idea to form a professional team was initiated. The club was first known as Al Ahli until they lost to Doha-based Al Ahli in Qatar. After the defeat, the new name, Al-Nasr, was proposed and adopted. 

Al-Nasr featured in the UAE Pro League in 1974 after starting the construction of their modern sports complex. They were one of the original UAE Pro League teams and hold a total of three league titles. They are four-time winners of the UAE President’s Cup and three-time winners of the Arabian Gulf Cup, among other cup trophies.

Al-Nasr has had several star players who have left their mark on the club, including Salim Bushenin, Awad Mubarak, and Ahmed Khorsheed. The club is chaired by Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance.
