Al Ain Sports and Cultural Club was established in 1968 in Al Ain city, Abu Dhabi. It has evolved to become one of the most decorated sports club in the UAE.
Football was the first activity offered by the club. However, as the popularity of the club grew it registered teams in volleyball, handball, basketball, athletics, swimming and other competitions. In all endeavours the achievements of these teams upheld the club's mission to be ranked one of the best clubs in the world.
With the advent of professionalism in sports, the club has taken on a new challenge to expand its administrative and commercial horizons to capitalise on the commercial interest in sports.
