About the team

Simorgh Alborz is the team representing those provinces located in the North of Afghanistan. These provinces are in the shadow of the Alborz mountain range which commences  here and stretches westwards all the way to the Caspian Sea.

The Simorgh is the mythical creature – a large, graceful, winged bird - which is referred to in many famous poems. It is a benevolent, wise and loving creature but is also capable of making great sacrifices.

In the Shahnama, Zal, the son of Saam,, is rescued after being abandoned at the Alborz mountain by the simorgh that lives at the peak of this mountain.  The simorgh is also mentioned in many other poetry including Fariddudin Attar’s ‘Conference of the Birds’, where the hoopoe  leads a group of thirty birds in search of the simorgh.

The Simorgh Alborz football team represent one of the most ancient and historic part of Afghanistan and hope to bring glory to its representative provinces. They believe the natural resting place for the Roshan APL Cup is in the foot of the Alorz mountains.
