Al-Gharafa Sports Club is primarily a Qatari football club from Doha, although it also has teams for other sports. It was established on the 6 June 1979 as Al-Ittihad and later officially incorporated into the Qatar Football Association on the 23 September that same year. The club was officially renamed to its current form in 2004 to better represent the district of Al-Gharafa, which the club belongs to. The idea of of creating the new club that would represent Gharafat Al-Rayyan sparked from a group of young Qataris in 1978. Most notably, people like Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Al-Thani, Sheikh Mohammad Bin Jassim Al-Thani, and Saad Mohammad Al-Rumaihi. In a documentary produced by Al Kass sports channel about the history of the club, Shiekh Hamad Bin Jassim mentioned that the idea was suggested by Saad Al-Romaihi initially who was working as a sports journalist at Al Raya newspaper.
