Football culture in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia has been pulling big moves in the football sector. Following Saudi Arabia’s performance at the FIFA World Cup last year where the team beat Argentina, the already-prevalent football culture has strengthened.
Major players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema were offered million-dollar deals to play in Saudi Pro League. Out of which, Ronaldo and Benzema have accepted the deals to move to Saudi’s football clubs.
24/7 Sport’s Executive producer, Mario Padilla added, “Saudi Arabia has a passionate football culture, and we are excited to bring our expertise and innovative content solutions to the market.
“Through this joint venture, we look forward to providing football players with the tools they need to amplify their personal brands and connect with their fans on a deeper level.
“With our expertise in insightful production combined with 24/7 Sports’ global capabilities, we are confident in our ability to tell captivating stories and deliver exceptional services to the Saudi sports industry.”
As part of the joint venture, Purple Brain and 24/7 Sports will collaborate with local football clubs, athletes, and sports organisations to produce content campaigns for Saudi Arabian football players.
These initiatives will include social media content, behind-the-scenes videos, player documentaries, and interactive fan experiences.
