Al-Aalami—the club’s nickname which in English means “the international club” has won nine (9) Premier League titles.

And at the international stage, they won two GCC Champions League and a historic double in 1998 by claiming both the Asian Cup Winner’s Cup and the Asian Super Cup. But their biggest record signing is Cristiano Ronaldo. Which is reportedly a two hundred million dollars ($200M) a year in wages.

Which League Is Al Nassr In?
Saudi Professional League is where Al Nassr is. Al Nassr plays in the top tier which is Saudi Professional League. The league consists of sixteen teams (16) with which three (3) teams at the bottom of the table face relegation. And only the team, whoever wins the league gets to represent the country at the Asian Champions League, the equivalent of the UEFA Champions League in Europe.
Cristiano, who is currently the all-time top scorer in the UEFA Champions League would be hoping his eternal rival and second on that list, Lionel Messi doesn’t overtake him since he will no longer play in Europe.
