Baghdad is home to some of the most successful football teams in Iraq, the biggest being Al Quwa Al Jawiya, Al Zawra, Al Shurta and Al Talaba. The largest stadium in Baghdad is Al Shaab Stadium which was opened in 1966. Another, but much larger stadium, is still in the opening stages of construction.

The city has also had a strong tradition of horseracing ever since World War I, known to Baghdadis simply as 'Races'. There are reports of pressures by the Islamists to stop this tradition due to the associated gambling.
