The UAE Pro League was established in 2008 under the name the “UAE Football League.” It was then declared as a committee working under the UAE Football Association umbrella in 2011. The UAE Pro League’s current legal status was declared by the General Authority of Sports resolution in 2019, which recognized the UAE PL as a juristic person.
