CHAMPIONS AL SHORTA LOSE FINAL LEAGUE MATCH OF THE SEASON
Al Shorta lost their last league game of the season 3-1 away to Al Bahri.
The result makes no difference to the outcome of the season for either club; Al Shorta were crowned champions two rounds ago while Al Bahri's relegation had already been confirmed.
Ammar Abdul-Hussein gave the visitors the lead but Ahmed Dawood, Amer Mithaa and Wael Abdul-Hussein replied as Al Bahri took the final three points of the season.
The Harps ended the season on 89 points, five points ahead of runners-up Al Quwa Al Jawiya, and will participate in five different competitions next season: the Iraqi Premier League, Iraqi FA Cup, Iraqi Super Cup, AFC Champions League and Arab Club Champions Cup.

AL SHORTA BEAT AL KARKH ON DAY OF CELEBRATIONS
Newly-crowned champions of Iraq, Al Shorta, picked up a 1-0 win over Al Karkh on Friday before lifting the Iraqi Premier League shield in front of thousands of jubilant fans at Al Shaab Stadium.
Hussam Kadhim scored a solo goal on ten minutes and it turned out to be the only goal in the Harps' penultimate game of the season.
Al Shorta were awarded the famous golden shield after the game, with captain Hussein Abdul Wahid becoming the joint-most successful player in the league's history with seven titles. The team then took the celebrations to the streets of Baghdad with an open-top bus parade in a day that will never be forgotten by anyone related with the six-time champions.
Al Shorta are the Kings of Iraq once more!
