- Saudi government in January enabled women to attend football matches
RIYADH: The wives and girlfriends of the Al-Hilal players added some glamor to the occasion when the Riyadh giants won the Saudi Pro League title.
The fiancèe of star midfield Nicolás Milesi and the wife of big-money forward Ezequiel Cerutti were among the crowd of 23,000 at the King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh as Al-Hilal beat Al-Fateh 4-1.
Dressed conservatively, they were benefiting from the ruling issued by the Saudi government in January that enabled women to attend football matches for the first time.
Milesi, the 25-year-old Uruguayan, has been at Al-Hilal since 2016 while Cerutti, his countryman, joined the club in January in a £4 million move from San Lorenzo.
The South American pair were both part of the side who clinched the Saudi Pro League title for the club for the 15th time on a night of big celebrations in the capital city.
Omar Khribin, was the hero for Al-Hilal, scoring a hat-trick.
