About the team
Shaheen Asmayee represents Kabul, the nation’s capital and cultural-economic center of Afghanistan with over 5 million inhabitants. The team is believed to be one of the well-recognized teams of the country.
Shaheen means falcon, an elegance bird with the ability to fly fast with great aerial agility to capture any prey. The second part, “Asmayee” refers to the majestic Asmayee Mountains that dominate the skyline of the capital, Kabul. The team hopes to emulate the speed, agility, and grace of their mascot.
Looking back to Afghan Premier League (APL) history, Shaheen Asmayee stands with pride and a long-prominent legacy.

Later, the two-¬time champions were determined to continue their winning streak playing against De Maiwand Atalan in the 2016 APL final during which Shaheen cruised to a 2-1 victory over its opponent.
