Italian sensation on Al-Jawhar’s Stadium


JEDDAH — Al-Jawhara Stadium in Jeddah will witness a unique Italian sensation for the first time. Juventus, last year’s Italian Cup winner, will lock horns with the cup runner-up AC Milan under the sponsorship of Mobil 1, the official lubricant for the Super Cup final.

Saudi football enthusiasts and Italian football fans will watch this final match with great excitement and suspense in a rare opportunity to see Italian and international football stars led by world-renowned Portuguese player Cristiano Ronaldo in his first appearance at Al-Jawhara Stadium, in addition to top players from both teams.

Mohammed Islam, Marketing Manager at Arabian Petroleum Supply Company (APSCO), expressed his pride to sponsor this international event, which is held in Saudi Arabia for the first time in the history of Saudi football.

“We are always trying to reach the largest segment of our customers through unique events, and we are fully aware of the importance of this event to the Saudi public. We hope that these important events will continue in Saudi Arabia because they come in line with our marketing strategy,” he added after announcing the sponsorship with the organizing company.

Islam concluded by urging the Saudi public to support the two teams in a civilized way to prove to the world that we deserve to host such a major global event. — SG
