Al Urooba History

Al Orooba has been on the scene since their inception in 1972. However, their history dates back to 1960, when two individual clubs, Al Wehda and Al Najma, were founded. Al Orooba is located in Fujairah, in the cities of Qidfa and Mirbah, home to the aforementioned clubs.

Al Orooba was promoted to the famous UAE Pro League in 2021 after defeating Dhaid and finishing first in the UAE Division One League. Unlike most teams in the UAE Pro League, Al Orooba players have always been predominantly local. Only a few foreign players from Brazil and Qatar have made the team.

The team have only recently entered the UAE Pro League. As such, they have not won any championship titles yet. The club’s president is Khalifa Rashid Al-Mallahi, and top players include Saeed Obaid, Khalid Yahya, Fawzi Fayez, and Rédah Atassi.
