Saudi Super Cup 2023-2024

Saudi Super Cup

Saudi Super Cup:

The Saudi Super Cup is an annual Super Cup football match organized by the Saudi Arabian Football Federation. It was established in 2013 as a two-team competition, but the current format has been in place since the 2022-23 season, featuring four teams: the winners and runners-up of the King Cup and Pro League. The competition traditionally took place the week before the start of the season in Saudi Arabia from 2013 to 2018. However, starting from the 2019 edition, it has been held mid-season. The current titleholders are Al-Ittihad, who secured victory with a 2–0 win over Al-Fayha in the 2022 edition. The most successful team in the competition is Al-Hilal, with three titles to their name.


The idea of a Super Cup tournament in Saudi Arabia dates back to 1979 when a two-legged match was held between the 1978–79 Saudi Premier League winners, Al-Hilal, and the 1979 King Cup winners, Al-Ahli. The tournament was officially inaugurated in 2013, with Al-Fateh winning the first official edition. In 2015, the Super Cup was played outside of Saudi Arabia for the first time, with Al-Hilal defeating Al-Nassr 1–0 in London. Subsequent editions were also held in London. The 2017 edition was canceled upon the request of then-Saudi national team manager, Edgardo Bauza, to accommodate the preparation program for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. In 2019, the Saudi Super Cup was held in Jeddah for the first time, and Al-Nassr emerged as champions. In 2021, the tournament was officially named "The Berain Saudi Super Cup" due to a sponsorship deal with Saudi water company Berain. On 30 January 2021, Al-Nassr defeated Al-Hilal 3–0 to win their second consecutive title, setting a record for the biggest goal margin. On 6 January 2022, Al-Hilal defeated Al-Faisaly 4–3 on penalties to become the most successful team in the competition with three titles. On 19 February 2022, expanded to four teams, including the winners and runners-up of the Saudi Professional League and the King Cup.

Competition Rules:

  • The match features the champions of the Pro League against the King Cup winners. If one team wins both the League and King Cup in a single season, the Pro League runner-up participates alongside the League winner.
  • The match consists of two halves of 45 minutes each. If the scores are level at the end of 90 minutes, a penalty shoot-out determines the winner.
