Soccer Iraq launches official Iraq National Team account in English

Soccer Iraq are delighted to announce that we have reached an agreement with the Iraq Football Association to manage the Iraq National Football Team’s official social media profiles in the English language.

Soccer Iraq was founded with the aim of creating an English-based website covering the Iraq National Football Team and the nation’s domestic club competitions. Over the years, with the continued growth of the platform, Soccer Iraq has been able to expand to providing digital media services within Iraqi football. The importance of digital media within sport, and football in particular, continues to grow, and this new step will help grow the profile of Iraqi football on an international scale and allow English-speaking Iraqi fans from around the world to easily follow the Lions of Mesopotamia.

This announcement comes at an exciting time for the national team, with Usood Al-Rafidain having recently been crowned champions of the Arabian Gulf Cup under new coach Jesús Casas and preparing to take part in the AFC Asian Cup next January. The Iraqi youth team has also qualified for the FIFA U20 World Cup, which will start this weekend.

The Iraq National Team’s Media Coordinator, Mohammed Imad, said the following about the move: “We believe it necessary to have official accounts for the national team in the English language, especially considering that our national team faces teams from outside the Arab world, whether they be from Asia or from other continents. We have followed and reviewed Soccer Iraq’s work for some time, and have found that they produce a distinctive style of work that is in line with what we would aim for with an official account, and hence there will be many advantages in working with them. We are excited to work together to produce great content for our homeland”.

Soccer Iraq would like to thank Mohammed Imad, as well as the IFA President, Adnan Dirjal, and the Director of IFA Media, Yousif Fial, for their cooperation in this process and we look forward to an exciting future and prosperous collaboration.
