Hilal El Obied SC compete in the Sudanese Premier League and are based in El-Obied, the capital city of the North Kordofan state. The club was founded in 1931 and are one of the oldest clubs in Sudan as well as arguably the most popular in the country outside the 2 Omdurman-based giants of Al-Hilal and Al-Merrikh. Despite their long history, they are yet to win a major title and until recently have mostly been fighting against relegation in the top tier or competing in the second tier. In recent years, they have emerged as a force in Sudanese football following their promotion to the Premier League for the 2015 season after 12 seasons in the Second Division. They finished in 6th place in 2015 and have consistently been a top 4 team since then, earning qualification for 4 of the past 5 CAF Confederation Cup tournaments. In the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup, they achieved their best-ever result, reaching the quarter-finals after shock wins against Zambia’s ZEXSCO United and Egyptian club Smouha. The closest the club has come to winning a major trophy has been in the Sudan Cup, where they finished runners-up in both 2016 & 2018.
Moaaz Al-Quoz has consistently been a leading striker the Sudanese Premier League over the past decade and has been one of the few players to not play for Omdurman-based giants Al-Hilal and Al-Merrikh to regularly be called-up to the national team. Al-Quoz began his senior club career with Port Sudan-based club Hay Al-Arab SC in 2011 and moved to Al-Khartoum in 2013 after the relegation of his former club. After 4 seasons in Khartoum, Al-Quoz signed with Hilal El Obied in 2017 and played a key role in the emergence of the club, where he was their leading goalscorer as they achieved in 3rd place in his debut season at El Obied. In 2020, the 32-year-old returned to his former club Al-Khartoum following 4 seasons with Hilal El Obied. At international level, Al-Quoz has been a regular in the Sudan national team since his debut in 2013. He has won 35 caps for his country and was a member of the squad that secured Sudan’s qualification for AFCON 2021.
