AMMAN –– Ramtha play Faisali on Thursday in the return leg of the 34th Jordan Cup quarter-finals.

Ramtha, who beat Faisali 1-0 in Leg 1, will seek to repeat their win and advance to the semis.

Strict measures will be applied in the match by officials after the Jordan Football Association (JFA) penalised Ramtha for unsportsmanlike conduct during their league match against Shabab Urdun. Ramtha will play their next league match without fans.

Other quarter-final matches saw Baqaa beat Sheikh Hussein 2-0 after a 5-2 win in Leg 1. Titleholders That Ras held Wihdat 1-1 and Leg 2 has been postponed as well as the Shabab Urdun-Hussein match due to AFC Cup matches. The JFA competitions committee is soon to release the amended season’s agenda which was set to end May 31. 

Last season (2012/13), That Ras, a newcomer to the Jordan Professional League, won the Jordan Cup — their first ever major title. 

Faisali are a record 17-time winners of the Jordan Cup. Wihdat were champs nine times, Ramtha and Shabab Urdun twice while Jazira and Arabi and That Ras won once. 

This season’s first title — the 31st Cup winners’ Cup — went to Shabab Urdun after they beat That Ras in the first of the three major local events on the 2013/14 calendar.
