Al Kharaitiyat vs Al Wakrah play-off on 14th April


The Qatar Stars League Management has scheduled the play-off between Al Kharaitiyat and Al Wakrah for a place in next season’s QNB Stars League for Saturday, 14th April, at the Al Ahli Stadium. The match will kick off at 18:20.

The play-off is between the 11th-placed team in the QNB Stars League and Second Division runners-up.

Al Kharaitiyat were assured of the 11th spot following their 3-2 victory over Qatar SC in Week 21, while Al Wakrah finished second behind Al Shahania in the Second Division whose champions directly qualify for the QNB Stars League.

Al Kharaitiyat moved to 16 points, four more than Al Markhiya, who were relegated after losing to new champions Al Duhail 2-4 with only one round of matches remaining.

If the tie ends in a draw after regular time, an extra time of 30 minutes (divided into two halves) will be allowed. If the deadlock still continues, it will be decided in tie-breaker.

It may be recalled that Al Shahania got relegated to the Second Division last season after losing the play-off to Qatar SC by a lone goal.
