Persepolis Football Club is one of the most prestigious football clubs in Iran and are based in the capital of Tehran. Today, Persepolis FC secured their tenth league title after defeating FC Mashhad with two-nil in their own backyard and winning the 2016/2017 Persian Gulf Professional League.
This will be Persepolis FC’s first league title in nine years. Last time they managed to lift the league title was in the 2007/2008 season with Afshin Ghotbi as the manager.
Unfortunate for FC Mashhad as today’s defeat to the Iranian champions Persepolis meant relegation to the second division.
