Persepolis Crowned Champion of Persian Gulf Pro League 2016/17
Perspolis Football Club celebrated championship of the Persian Gulf Pro League on Wednesday April 19, at Azadi Stadium in Tehran in the presence of over 80,000 fervent fans.
The Reds cruised to championship within three weeks of the end of the league after a 2-0 win against Machine Sazi on April 15 and a string of impressive performances that ended their league title drought since 2008.
On Wednesday, they played with Padideh and won the game 4-0.
Perspolis, one of the most popular teams in Asia, will add a star to their badge for their 10th title in season 2017/18.
Last year, Perspolis came within a touching distance of winning the league with their Croatian boss and former Team Melli head coach Branko Ivankovic, but lost to Esteqlal-e Khuzestan on goal difference.
