The following season, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, sponsored the second final in the same stadium, which witnessed a great competition between the two poles of the capital, Al-Nasr and Al-Hilal. Al-Hilal equalized in the 119th minute with the goal of Muhammad Jafali, who was known as “Al-Jafla later.” In the 2016 season, Al-Ahly collected the cup with the league, by defeating Al-Nasr 2/1, after the confrontation extended to two additional periods after the 1/1 tie in the original time. The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Raqi, crowned the title, in the 2017 season.
