About our Saudi Pro League news

Latest news on the Saudi Professional League (SPL), the highest division of association football in Saudi Arabia. It was established in 1976 and is currently sponsored by Roshn, a national housing company. The league consists of 16 teams that play each other twice in a double round-robin format, for a total of 30 matches per season. The season usually runs from August to May.

The top two teams at the end of the season qualify for the group stage of the AFC Champions League, while the third-placed team enters the play-off round. The bottom three teams are relegated to the First Division League, which is the second tier of Saudi football. The league also has a domestic cup competition, the King's Cup, which involves teams from all levels of Saudi football.

The most successful team in the SPL history is Al-Hilal, who have won 16 titles, followed by Al-Ittihad with 9 titles and Al-Nassr with 8 titles. The current champions are Al-Ittihad, who won their ninth title in the 2022–23 season, ending Al-Hilal's three-year dominance.

The SPL is known for attracting some big names from Europe and South America, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kante, Romarinho, Bafétimbi Gomis, and Carlos Eduardo. The league also has some local stars, such as Omar Al Somah, Abderrazak Hamdallah, and Salem Al-Dawsari.
