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.
The club also has participations in other sports, most notably in handball where its team has previously achieved 3rd place in both, the GCC Handball Championship, and the Asian Club Handball Championship.
El Jaish SC Wikipedia
El Jaish SC was officially established in 2011 after spending several seasons in the second division without being eligible for promotion.
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.
In 2013, El Jaish were involved in the controversial case of Zahir Belounis not being granted an exit visa over his dispute with the club over unpaid wages.
