The 2023-24 season of The Saudi Pro League (SPL) has witnessed some surprising and thrilling performances from both local and international players.
One of the most remarkable stories of the season, so far, is the rise of Abderrazak Hamdallah, the Moroccan striker, who plays for Al-Ittihad.
Hamdallah has scored four goals in his last three league games, putting him ahead of some of the world’s most famous and expensive players, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Roberto Firmino, Malcom Filipe Silva, and Sadio Mane, who have all joined the SPL in 2023.
Hamdallah’s extraordinary form has stunned fans and experts alike, as he challenges for the coveted Golden Boot award, which is given to the top goal-scorer in the league.
The Golden Boot race is not the only attraction of the SPL, which has become one of the most competitive and star-studded leagues in the world. The SPL boasts some of the best teams and players in Asia and beyond, such as Al-Hilal, Al-Nassr, Al-Ahli, Al-Ittihad, Neymar, Karim Benzema, Odion Ighalo, N’Golo Kante, Kalidou Koulibaly, and many more.
Football fans in sub-Saharan Africa can catch all the exciting action and drama of the SPL live on StarTimes.
StarTimes, yesterday, said it has successfully renewed its contract with the Saudi Professional League (SPL) for two consecutive seasons from 2023/24 to 2024/25 on an all-media platform and all languages rights in sub-Saharan Africa region.
