Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and other football legends set to play in Abu Dhabi this April

Abu Dhabi is set to host this year’s edition of the Saudi Super Cup in two stadiums across the emirate, on 8 and 11 April 2024, marking the first time the tournament has been hosted in the Middle East outside of Saudi Arabia.

The three-match tournament kicks off on 8 April at 9pm (UAE time) between Al-Ittihad Club and Al Wehda FC at Al-Nahyan Stadium, followed by Al Hilal SFC and Al-Nassr FC at the Mohamed Bin Zayed Stadium at 11:30 pm (UAE time).

Taking place in the same venue, the winners will face off during the 11 April final.

The tournament will feature football legends Cristiano Rolando and Karim Benzema, alongside regional talent that includes Salem Al Dawsari and Abderrazak Hamdallah, all competing for the coveted cup.

The Saudi Super cup is the latest sports and entertainment event added to Abu Dhabi’s ‘Back-to-Back’ calendar and coincides with the Eid Al Fitr public holiday, allowing travellers from the GCC, Middle East and beyond to enjoy some of the region’s top football talent play in the emirate.
