El-Jaish Sports Club (Arabic: نادي الجيش الرياضي‎‎) is a Qatar multi-sports club, based in the Al-Duhail area of Doha. The Association Football team currently plays in the Qatar Stars League. The team won the Qatargas League prior to 2011, but were not eligible for promotion and as a result were not declared as the champions of the league. It was promoted to the first division, the Stars League, the first year after it was made eligible.

In its first season in the Qatar Stars League, El Jaish finished second, just two points behind champions Lekhwiya, and qualified for the 2013 AFC Champions League. After a poor start to the 2013 Champions League, El Jaish won 3 of its 4 last group stage games to emerge as the groups runners-up, setting up a Round of 16 tie against Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia. They were eliminated after losing 0–2 in the away game and 1–3 on aggregate.
