Al Sadd Stadium
Al Khor was formed when local residents, who mainly worked in the oil and gas sector, realised the importance of having a club to satisfy their sports and social needs.
Two local sports clubs came together to form Al Taawon Sports Club in 1961. In 2002, the Qatar Olympic Committee changed the name to Al Khor Sports Club to represent the city of Al Khor.
Nicknamed The Knights, Al Khor won the Heir Apparent Cup in 2005. They perform consistently well in all competitions and tournaments.
Omar Najhi is one of the young coaches in the QNB Stars League. He had been at Al Khor’s helm as caretaker coach last season as well.
Omar, who took over from French coach Bernard Casoni, is no stranger to Al Khor. He has been coaching their Under-23 team besides being an assistant coach.
He is very energetic and close to the players mainly because he is in his early years of coaching.
