On January 19 in Riyadh, Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will meet again on the pitch. One will wear the shirt of Paris Saint-Germain, while the other will wear that of a Saudi Arabian all-star team with players from Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr, the Portuguese star’s new club.
Anticipation is at its peak in the country and one of the incentives that has been touted in recent days is that an auction is currently underway to win a ‘Beyond Imagination’ ticket to meet two of the world’s top football stars. .
As well as watching the match, the winner will be able to attend the awards ceremony and enter both dressing rooms, meaning they can meet Ronaldo and Messi. Saudi Arabian businessman Mushref Al-Ghamdi put $2.6 million on the table for a ticket, and the general manager of the AqarOne real estate group is currently leading the bidding for the coveted pass. The auction will end on January 17.
It will undoubtedly be a meeting full of curiosity and anticipation as the two players have not seen each other on the pitch since 2020 when Ronaldo’s Juventus beat Barcelona 3-0 in the Champions League.
