The Qatari Basketball League is the top-tier basketball league operating in Qatar. The winning team obtains the participation right to the FIBA Asia Champions Cup. The first official season took place in 1981/82.[1] There is a second division, with plans to expand it in the future. Currently, there are only two domestic championships, the Emir of Qatar Cup and the Qatar Crown Prince Cup.

As of the 2012-13 season, the league expanded from 8 to 12 for the first time in history, with the newly entered clubs including Lekhwiya, Al-Shamal Sports Club, Umm Salal SC, and Al-Khor Sports Club.[2]
