Al-Hilal
Al-Hilal Saudi Football Club is one of the most important and famous clubs in Saudi Arabia and the entire Middle East, thanks to its extensive history spanning over the years.

Club Establishment:

Al-Hilal Club was founded on October, 16, 1957, by Sheikh Abdulrahman bin Saeed – may God have mercy on him – a prominent figure in sports and one of the pioneers of the athletic movement in the Kingdom. Initially, it was named Al-Olympi. A little over a year after its establishment, on December 2, 1958, the club's name was changed to Al-Hilal by a gracious royal decree from King Saud bin Abdulaziz Al Saud – may God have mercy on him. The club chose its blue and white emblem to distinguish these colors from those of other clubs.

Al-Hilal club headquarters

Is located in the Al-Ureija district of Riyadh, built by the wise government according to the highest sports standards. It includes multiple fields for all sports, in addition to halls, a theater, and an internal camp for team members.

Al-Hilal Club Stadium

The stadium can accommodate 58,398 spectators and is primarily used for football matches for Al-Hilal and the Saudi national team, as well as athletics events.
