Al Yarmouk SC (Basketball)

Average Reviews


A very decent and professional club in Kuwait with a very good basketball training facility.

The idea of initiating a club based in the island of Failaka began in 1963 when a group of local footballers wanted to officially join the Kuwaiti football association and start participating in its respective competitions. The club was to represent the local inhabitants of Failaka. The club was officially declared on 28 February 1965 and was formally conceived by the Kuwaiti FA board on 7 March 1965.

The name of the club roots back in the legendary Islamic Battle of Al Yarmouk, which took place near the Yarmouk River, now the border between Jordan and Syria, between Arab Muslims and Byzantine Christians. The reason why this name was chosen is that Al Yarmouk holds various Greek ruins, which reminded the local people of the Byzantine Empire and how strongly it influenced Northern Arabia before Islamic times. The club badge represents a reminder of Failaka’s history as Ikarus, the name given to it by the ancient Macedonians during Alexander the Great’s reign over this region, and his establishments on the island which is reflected today by the appearance of many old Greek ruins.
