Al Nassr fixtures schedule 2023-2024: When does Cristiano Ronaldo play in Saudi Pro League, AFC Champions League | Sporting News United Kingdom (2024)

The 2023/24 Saudi Pro League season continues to attract major international attention following the wave of transfer signings to the country during the summer of 2023.

The Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired focus on Al Nassr that started in January 2023 will be stepped up even more as Ronaldo is now joined by stars like Sadio Mane, Marcelo Brozovic, Seko Fofana, and Alex Telles, who have already helped to deliver a first piece of silverware with the Arab Club Champions Cup.

But stars have flocked to other Saudi Arabian teams, too. Following a move by the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) to bring four of the league's biggest clubs under their financial control, the transfers have rolled in across the board.

The increase in star names alongside Ronaldo, including his former Real Madrid teammate Karim Benzema (Al Ittihad), World Cup winner N'Golo Kante (Al Ittihad) and Brazil star Neymar (Al Hilal), will bring more eyes on the league for the new campaign.

For those tuning in for Ronaldo,The Sporting News details his schedule with Al Nassr for the coming season.
