Check out our full Saudi Pro League season guide here
The Saudi Pro League is all set for a new season that promises to send the league into the stratosphere and among the big boys of club football.
After a summer of sensational transfer activity, the kingdom has emerged as one of the most desired destinations for top players.
It all started when Cristiano Ronaldo signed an era-defining deal with Al Nassr last season. That move opened the floodgates as top-tier talents like Karim Benzema, Sadio Mane, N'Golo Kante, Jordan Henderson and many more moved to the Saudi Pro League.
And now, you can watch the new heavyweights of football live anywhere around the globe. The Saudi Pro League on Wednesday secured deals across various international networks to broadcast matches live in more than 130 countries and territories.
The agreements include a deal with DAZN in multiple territories (Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, and the UK) as well as major European broadcasters Canal+ (France), Sport TV (Portugal) and La 7 (Italy), among others.
Fans in the UAE and Mena region can enjoy live action on MBC Shahid.
