AMMAN — The second title of 2020 football season agenda saw Faisali beat Jazira to win the 37th Jordan Super Cup — the second major competition on the annual football calendar.

Jordan Football Association (JFA) Professional League and Cup champs Faisali came back from 1-0 down to tie league runner-up Jazira in the second half before going on to win the penalty shoot out 4-3.

The Super Cup has now been won by Faisali a record 17 times out of 25 final appearances, Wihdat have won 13 times, Ramtha and Shabab Urdun twice each, while Jazira, Hussein and Ahli won once each.

Last week, Wihdat beat Ramtha 2-1 to win the 33rd JFA Shield — the first of the football season competitions. Wihdat claimed their record 10th Shield title while Ramtha, who have not won a major competition recently, and are five time Shield champs, last won the Jordan Cup in 1990-1991 and the Shield in 2001.

The JFA Professinal League kicks off on Thursday.

Regionally, Faisali and Jazira are playing the 17th Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup — the second-tier Asian club competition. Faisali last lost to Lebanon’s Ansar 4-3 and dropped to last in Group B after holding Syria’s Wathba 0-0 in their first match. Jazira also lost 2-0 to Bahrain’s Riffa’ SC, and remained last in Group C after they lost 1-0 to Oman’s Dhofar in their first match.
