Their plan entails a shift from the existing structure of the competition to a unified championship-style setup featuring 36 clubs. Each clubs would engage in eight matches before advancing to the knockout rounds. This innovative proposal not only expands the match count for UEFA but also extends the opportunity for a Saudi Pro League clubs to shine on the European stage.

And that’s not all. Should UEFA embrace this idea, football legends like Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Neymar could grace European fields once again. Beyond player excitement, such a breakthrough would undoubtedly catapult the Saudi Pro League’s prominence and global prestige to unprecedented heights.

If UEFA gives its approval, the Saudi Pro League, the country’s highest football division, would secure an extra slot in the competition.

Established clubs such as Jeddah’s Al-Ittihad and Al-Ahli, along with Riyadh’s Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal, could potentially compete with elite squads from the traditional football heartlands. This opportunity promises heightened international recognition and holds the potential to foster the growth of clubs that are still evolving in terms of organizational structure and capabilities.
