Saudi Sports Authority hands out gifts in London neighborhood


LONDON -- Saudi Arabia’s General Sports Authority and the Saudi Arabian Football Federation handed out special gifts to the residents of the London neighborhood near Queens Park Rangers’ Loftus Road Stadium.

Loftus Road Stadium played host to the Saudi Super Cup final in which Al-Hilal defeated Al-Ittihad 2-1.

The parcel also had a card with a message written in English that read: “On behalf of the Saudi public, we thank you for hosting us in your wonderful city. We hope you accept this gift in recognition of your support.”

The QPR stadium hosted the Saudi Super Cup for the second time in its history after hosting the final in 2015 between Al-Nasr and Al- Hilal.
