The Saudi Professional League announced the date of the next match between Al-Ittihad and Al-Hilal in the 27th round of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Professional League.
The League had postponed all round matches due to the death of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, president of the United Arab Emirates.
The round 27 summit between Al-Ittihad and Al-Hilal will take place on May 23, after it was scheduled to be played next Sunday.
The Saudi League is witnessing a fierce fight for the title of the current season between Al-Ittihad and Al-Hilal.
