The clubs fan-base comes from the town of Zgharta and the region of North Lebanon. The clubs traditional kit colour is dark red. Since its foundation, Al Salam sports club has aimed to provide a proper physical education for Lebanese youth in Zgharta and the North area.

For this reason, the concern is to establish relations and promote cooperation with other sports leagues and clubs and related Lebanese authority (Ministry of Youth Sports) and establish partnership with nonprofit humanitarian organization to develop, participate in as well as implement projects cutting across cultural lines.

Moreover, the present stadium, football field and multipurpose player rooms are in bad condition because of the absence of qualified management team and lack of financial resources necessary to renovate the building and plant the field.

Al Salam's new administrative board that took responsibility is keen to secure fund to complete the renovation works at the physical plant and to implement current and future program of the club.

Renovation quotation and engineering plans from engineering firms and agricultural companies are being requested.

The renovation of the building will incorporate the needs of the club and support its future programs.

Currently, and because of the facts mentioned above, Al Salam Club also faces new challenges – such as decline in membership growth, rising age demographic of membership, in addition to the field and facilities requirements – Al Salam Club must address these needs and take on new responsibilities and liabilities. There is a need to rebuild the membership and establish a true sense of community and commitment within the Club.
