Kuwait Club players celebrate after beating Al-Qadisya to win the Zain Premier League.

KUWAIT CITY, May 25: Kuwait Club secured the Zain Premier League title for the third consecutive year and 19th title in its history by defeating Al-Qadisiya 3-0 in the ninth and penultimate round of the championship group. Al Arabi drew 1-1 with Al Fahaheel in the same round, and Al Salmiya triumphed over Al Nasr 5-3.

Kuwait Club’s points tally reached 66, followed by Al Arabi with 59, Al-Qadisiya with 51, Al Salmiya with 35, and Al Fahaheel with 32. Al Nasr remained in sixth place with 24 points. Mohammed Dahham scored for Kuwait in the 10th minute, Youssef Al-Haqqan added an own goal in the 12th, and Youssef Nasser netted a penalty kick in the 60th minute.

“Al-Abyad” showed its strength against Al-Qadisiya, achieving its goal and securing three points to avoid facing Al-Arabi in a critical situation in the final round scheduled for tomorrow. This ensured they avoided any scenario that could complicate their mission.

Kuwait Club is just two behind Al-Arabi and Al-Qadisiya. Maintaining this performance could make it challenging for their rivals to catch up.

Kuwait Club’s Tunisian coach, Nabil Maaloul, described this league edition as “the most difficult in terms of competing for the title.” He took over mid-season with equal points with Al-Arabi and one point behind Al-Qadisiya. Maaloul noted that the Premier League teams’ level was unprecedentedly strong, with Al-Qadisiya and Al-Arabi competing until the last rounds.

He praised the tremendous efforts of everyone in Kuwait Club, whose continuous and diligent work culminated in winning the title. Regarding his future with Kuwait Club next season, he mentioned that “things have not yet been resolved with the administration.”

Vice President of the Football Association in Kuwait Club, Adel Oqla, attributed his team’s success to continuous work in the “White Castle,” the administration’s support, and the great effort by the players, as well as the technical, administrative, and medical staff.

He emphasized that the championships and successes achieved by “Al-Abyad” increase the responsibility and require more work in the coming period. He noted the task this season was challenging due to fierce competition from Al-Arabi, Al-Qadisiyah, and most participating teams.

Regarding the victory over Al-Qadisiyah, Oqla pointed out that the players were highly focused and succeeded in achieving its goals within the first quarter of an hour.
