Karbalaa’s first season in the Iraqi Premier League was the 1992/93 season, where they successfully avoided relegation, but they eventually did get relegated in the 1994/95 season and again in the 2000/01 season. From the 2003/04 season until the 2017/18 season, Karbalaa were ever-present in the Premier League and have had some memorable players in their ranks in the past including the Iraqi Premier League’s all-time top scorer, Sahib Abbas. They have even finished as high as sixth which they achieved twice in a row in 2006/07 and 2007/08. They went downhill since then though, being relegated in 2017/18.
