PSG flies to Saudi Arabia for the next edition of the Riyadh Season Cup

It's official! The new edition of the "Riyadh Season Cup" will take place in a few months. So, no time to lose for the players of Paris Saint Germain who will fly in January 2022 for a summit match against a Saudi team composed of the sportsmen of two Saudi flagship clubs: Al-Hilal and Al Nassr FC! 

A match at the top 

After the arrival of Lionel Messi in the club of the capital, another good news has just been announced! Indeed, at the beginning of next year, all the members of the team will fly to Saudi Arabia with only one idea in mind: to win the match that will oppose them to the Saudi gala team on January 19th

This is a first for the team, who have never played on Saudi soil before! The tournament will be the occasion for the Parisians to face a team composed of players from two Saudi clubs: Al-Hilal and Al Nassr FC

Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, as well as this summer’s new recruits are therefore expected to take part in the trip. 

Further proof of Saudi Arabia’s openness to the world 

But this announcement is also good news for the country in terms of visibility! Indeed, hosting this type of international sporting event, promoted by a team as influential as the 2021 Paris Saint-Germain with its legion of global stars, represents a real opportunity to open a window to the world on life in the country.

See you there for the lucky ones, or behind your screens for a match that promises suspense and excitement!
