The Asian Football Confederation announced today Tuesday that the 2021 AFC Champions League final between South Korea’s Al Hilal and Pohang Steelers will be held with a 100% crowd.
Al Hilal will meet South Korean Pohang next Tuesday in the 2021 AFC Champions League final, at the King Fahd Stadium, which seats around 68,000 spectators in the Saudi capital.
The Asian Football Confederation has approved the decision of the Saudi Football Association to hold the game with a 100% audience presence, fully maintaining the protocols to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic established by the AFC and the competent authorities in Saudi Arabia.
Three West Asia Zone knockout stage matches took place in Riyadh, where 20,000 spectators watched the quarter-final match between UAE’s Al Wahda and Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr, at King Saud University Stadium, and 15,000 spectators watched Iran’s Persepolis match against Arabia Al Hilal at the Prince Faisal bin Fahd stadium.
The biggest participation was during the semifinal match which brought together the two Riyadh poles, Al-Nasr and Al-Hilal, with 24,000 spectators attending the match at the King Saud University stadium.
The final brings together two of the most successful teams in tournament history, as each of them have won the Asian Club Champions League title twice and once in the AFC Champions League. The title winner will receive a ticket to represent Asia in the World Cup for club FIFA 2021 in the United Arab Emirates.
King Fahd Stadium hosted the Asian Club Championship final in 1995 and 2000, as well as the 2014 AFC Champions League final between Al Hilal and Western Sydney Wanderers, as well as the 2017 AFC Champions League final between Al Hilal and Urua Red Diamonds.
