This duo contains of a title holder Al Rayyan and Al Arabi who ended as the fourth last season, but most likely it was only its ‘current weakness’.

Why is Al Rayyan one of the main contenders for the title? They played the finals of the FIVB Club World Championship in Brazil and most of the Qatar internationals are in its squad.

On the other hand, Al Arabi fans have even more reasons to be optimistic. Their team already won two trophies in pre-season. Firstly, it won Federation Cup after beating Al Jaish in tie-break and secondly, it won Qatar Supercup against Al Rayyan.

These two clubs have won a combined 32 titles! Al Arabi – 24 and Al Rayyan – 8.

Other two teams with chances to be the best at the end of the season are vice champion Police and Al Ahli.

It is expected that many clubs will hire newcomers at the very end of transfer window.

Some of foreign respectable names play in Qatar League – German Christian Pampel (Al Jaish), Algerian Toufik Mahdjoubi (Qatar SC) or French Philippe Barca-Cysique (Al Ahli). Coaches, as well – Italian Daniele Bagnoli (Al Rayyan) or French Jean-Michele Roche (Police).
