Zakho started off life in the Iraqi Premier League in 2002 but were relegated within four years. They returned in 2007/08 but were relegated straight back to the lower division that season without winning a single game. It wasn’t until the 2010/11 season that Zakho became a strong team in Iraqi football when they finished fifth twice in a row and then finished seventh in the 2013/14 season. They have recently built a new stadium, the Zakho International Stadium, and with some strong new foreign players, Zakho could well be a force to be reckoned with in the 2016/17 campaign.
