These deals help increase the global reach of the league and make matches available to a wide global audience through multiple platforms.

With substantial investments from the PIF, the market value of clubs has significantly increased. The goal is to raise the league's annual revenue to 1.8 billion SAR ($480 million) by 2030, increasing the market value from 3 billion to 8 billion SAR ($2.13 billion).
