Tomorrow .. The ceremony of the draw of the Football Cup of the Guardian of the Two Holy Mosques

Tomorrow, at two in the afternoon, in the capital, Riyadh, the ceremony of the draw of the Cup of the Keeper of the Two Holy Mosques for football for the current 2021-2022 sports season will be held.

The tournament will be held for the second consecutive season exclusively on club of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Professional Cup, after the board of directors of the Saudi Football Association decided last April to continue to limit participation in professional teams, due to the pressure of the match calendar that will see the final qualifiers for the Cup of the World 2022, in addition to the new Arab Cup tournament to be held under the aegis of the International Football Association “FIFA”, next December, as well as the participation of club Saudis in the Asian Champions League.

The tournament starts from the round of 16 with a single elimination system, with no direct draw and without specifying any level.

The draw ceremony will take place through “two bowls”, the first containing the names of the 16 teams and the other containing the numbers from 1 to 16 inside the balls, where the team will be chosen and then the number will be drawn by random drawing , and the team will be settled in based on its lottery number, and the team chosen first will play its game in a round 16 in home.

In the matches of the quarter-finals and semi-finals, on the same day, another draw will be held to choose the location of the match for the teams qualified for these two rounds.

Interestingly, Al-Faisaly won last year’s title for the first time in its history, after beating Al-Taawon 3-2 in the match held at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh.
