Current season
Al-Jazira was established in 1974 as a merger between Khalidiyah and Al Bateen.[3] The club would find itself struggling to stay in the league however, getting relegated in multiple occasions during the 1980s and 1990s but experienced a recent success when Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan invested into the club in the 2000s, they won their first league title on 2011 and two more league titles on 2017 and 2021 respectively. The Club has produced talented homegrown players such as Ali Mabkhout and Khalfan Mubarak and many others that would end up playing for the UAE on an international level.
