Tue 21-01-2014

A Saudi groom who supports the local Al Hilal football club told fans of the rival club Al Nasr they are not welcome at his wedding.

The groom made the remark in thousands of invitation cards he sent out for his wedding held in the northwestern Saudi town of Sakakah.

A copy of the card was published in local newspapers and later went viral on social networks in the Gulf Kingdom, where football fans have been split into two main camps due to the strong rivalry between the two largest clubs Al Hilal and Al Nasr.

The card carried an invitation to the wedding and a small remark at the bottom saying: “All fans of Al Nasr — men and women — are not allowed in.”
