Saudi Super Cup 2021-22 on Jan 6




The Saudi Arabian Football Federation has announced that the 2021-22 Saudi Super Cup will take place on Jan. 6 between league champions Al-Hilal and King’s Cup holders Al-Faisaly.

The game, to be played at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, will be the eight edition of the showpiece match.

Al-Hilal have previously qualified for the Super Cup five times, winning the trophy twice, while the meeting against Al-Ittihad in 2017 was cancelled.

Meanwhile, it will be Al-Faisaly’s first appearance in the Super Cup after having beaten Al-Taawuon in last season’s King’s Cup.

The announcement means Al-Hilal and Al-Faisaly will play each other twice within one week; first in the 15th round of the Saudi Pro League Championship on Thursday, Dec. 30 and then in the Super Cup the following Thursday.—AN
