When was Al-Nassr Established?

Al Nassr was established in 1955 by Zeid Bin Mutlaq Al-Ja’ba Al-Dewish Al-Mutairi. Training took place in an old playground at Gashlat Al-Shortah west of Al-Fotah Garden where there was a small football field and a small room to store balls and shirts. In addition to the Al-Ja’ba brothers, Ali and Issa Al-Owais were among the first to work at the club.

The club operated as an amateur club until 1960 when it was registered officially with the General Presidency of Youth Welfare. It was at this time that Abdul Rahman bin Saud Al Saud became the head of Al Nassr. Al Nassr started in the second division of the league.

They were promoted to the first division in 1963. During the 1970s and 1980s, the club won four Saudi Premier League titles, six King’s Cups, three Crown Prince Cups and three Federation Cup.

The team’s success was built around the “Saudi Golden Trio” of Majed Abdullah, Fahd Al-Herafy and Mohaisn Al-Jam’aan.

What Does Al Nassr Mean?

Al Nassr is the Arabic word for “victory.” Clubs with the same name are found in Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, UAE and Libya but the Saudi Arabian club was the first to take the name.

The club’s logo represents the map of Arabia with yellow and blue colors. Yellow for the gorgeous sand of the Arabian deserts, and blue for the magnificent water in the Arabian Sea, the Arabian Gulf and the Red Sea surrounding the Arabian Peninsula.

Recently the old logo has been replaced by a “more modern version”, but still is heavily influenced by the old club logo. The new logo only represents the football team while the old logo represents the club as a whole.

Al Nassr Trophies

Al-Nassr have won a combined total of 20 national top-flight trophies as well as 8 regional and various friendly tournaments. The club holds various domestic and international records.

 The club is recognized by FIFA as the first Asian club to play on an international level, as well as the first club in the world to win the FIFA Fair Play Award in the FIFA Club World Cup.

 On a continental level, Al-Nassr appeared on 4 Asian finals, with two victories, and two times as runners-up.
