When I got started in the world of football, I never would have imagined a trip like this. Today I’m starting a new football challenge in the city of Jeddah, the second largest city in Saudi Arabia. There, in Al-Ahli Saudi FC, the game goes on. I’m traveling to a new world, and the dream continues.
A team with history
Al-Ahli, (in Arabic: الأهلي السعودي), formerly called Al-Thaghar, is a football club from Saudi Arabia founded in 1937 in the city of Jeddah. Throughout its history, this club has won the national league championship on three different occasions: in 1978, 1984 and 2016.
