2010-11 QSL schedule announced

The Qatar Football Federation (QFA) announced the 2010-11 Qatar Stars League schedule on Tuesday.

There will be huge anticipation among football fans in Qatar for the first week that will kick off in mid-September as 12 time champion Al Sadd host Al Rayyan at Jassim bin Hamad Stadium. The match is dubbed "El Clasico" due to the huge popularity of both clubs in Qatar.

Defending champions Al Gharrafa was due to face Al Ahli in the same round but the match was postponed due to the leopards' AFC Champions League quarter finals clash against Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia.
