Al-Diwaniya, founded in 1965, are currently in their fifth spell in Iraq’s top-flight. They have never been one of the top sides in the country, with their highest finish being 11th, and were promoted to the Iraqi Premier League for the fifth time in 2017 by winning the Division One title under Qusay Munir’s leadership. The Reds managed to survive relegation last season and will be hoping to repeat that next time out.
