The 2018/19 season will begin on 14 September. The league champions will qualify for the 2020 AFC Champions League (unless they fail the competition’s licensing requirements in which case they will be transferred to the AFC Cup) and the 2020/21 Arab Club Champions Cup. The runners-up will only qualify for the 2020/21 Arab Club Champions Cup. Two teams will be relegated and two teams will be promoted in their place.
