Al-Ahli Jeddah has won the 2015–16 Saudi Professional League for the first time in 32 years after a crucial 3-1 victory over title rivals Al-Hilal on Sunday.

With 57 points from 24 matches, the Jeddah-based club has won the league title with two games to play due to their superior head-to-head record against second-placed Al-Hilal.

Previously, Al-Ahli Saudi won the Saudi Professional League twice in 1978 and 1984. The team also won the Crown Prince Cup six times and the King Cup of Champions 12 times.
