In September 2009, Al Hilal was awarded Best Asian Club of the 20th Century by the IFFHS.

Al Hilal Club was known as the Olympic Club during its founding by Abdul Rahman Bin Saad Bin Saeed on 15 October 1957 in Riyadh. The club's name lasted for only one year before it was changed to its current name on 3 December 1958 by King Saud Bin Abdul-Aziz, he changed the name after he attended a tournament, contested between the Olympic Club, Al-Shabab, Al-Riyadh and El-Kawkab clubs. As soon as the club's establishment, Al Hilal enjoyed not only grassroots support but royal attention. After spending their formative years building a squad, the club made their first mark by lifting the King's Cup trophy in 1961; that began a period. Al Hilal recaptured the King's Cup in 1964, with a penalty shootout victory over two-time Asian champions Al-Ittihad; the club were the inaugural winners when the Saudi Premier League came into existence in the 1976–77 season. Al Hilal won the title another 14 times and finished runners-up on 12 occasions in the space of 32 years. Al Hilal have seven King's Cup, twelve Crown Prince Cup and eight Saudi Federation Cup titles.

With the success, a number of players and coaches from outside Saudi Arabia joined the club in the 1970s, including Brazilians Mario Zagallo and Roberto Rivelino. In 1991, they won Asian Club Championship, they won it again in 1999–2000, again in 2019. 1997 they captured the Asian Cup Winners Cup and the Asian Super Cup of that year, which they lifted again in 2002. Al Hilal reached the final of the AFC Champions League in 2014, where they faced Western Sydney Wanderers; the Australian club won 1–0 on aggregate. Al Hilal plays their home games at King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh and at King Fahd International Stadium a stadium, constructed in 1987 with a capacity of 67,000 supporters; the club's reserve team stadium, Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium, was used in 2011–12 when King Fahd Stadium was under renovation. When prince Abdulrahman bin Musa'ad became the owner of the club in 2008, there was some serious idea of making Al Hilal home avenue but it was shortly declined. On, King Saud University had their new spectacular stadium offered for an annual contract and Al Hilal was the club with the best offer.

Al Hilal has a long-standing rivalry with Al-Ittihad. From the start of national competition the clubs were seen as representatives of two rival cities: Riyadh and Jeddah. Matches between the two are called'El Clasico's. After the success of Al Hilal in Asia when they won three Asian Club Championship in years 1991, 1999–2000 and 2019, Al Ittihad has won AFC Champions League two times in a row, in 2004 and 2005.

Another rivalry is with their neighbors Al-Nassr, called Riyadh's Derby, they have met 148 times, Al Hilal has won 59 times, lost 48 times, while 41 ties have ended in a draw. The biggest win is for Al Hilal when they defeated Al-Nassr 5–1 in 2016–17; the rivalry with Al-Nasser is violent between them more than the rivalry with Al-Ittihad. As an example, when Al Hilal reached the 2014 AFC Champions League Final, in 2nd leg Al-Nassr fans awaited Western Sydney Wanderers arrival at the airport to spur them on against Al Hilal and tried to sabotage Al Hilal's ticket plan.

Lake Ella

Lake Ella is a lake in central Tallahassee, Florida on US 27 just south of Tharpe Street, just north of Downtown. Lake Ella has an area of 12 acres. Once used for cattle, it now has three fountains and is used for recreation, flood protection, stormwater pollution control. Lake Ella was called Bull Pond. Records for this name date back as far as 1867 when some local black churches held baptisms in its clear waters. In 1867 some 2000 "freedmen" gathered there for a day-long political rally. In the early 20th century Lake Ella became part of the "Old Spanish Trail", a coast-to-coast highway extending from San Diego to St. Augustine, Fl; this was one of a network of named roads, so named to promote tourism. On the west bank of the lake are several cottages that were once part of the Tallahassee Motor Hotel, a hotel opened by Gilbert S. Chandler in 1925 to cater to this tourist trade. Around the same time the lake was renamed Lake Ella; the cottages are now occupied by local businesses. On the north shore of the lake is American Legion Post 13.

Lake Ella is incorporated into the 6.5 acre Fred Drake Park. The park has picnic shelters, a site for community activities such as amateur astronomy and exercising, a paved walking trail that encircles the lake. Visitors can skate, or skateboard the 0.6 mi around the lake. Visitors enjoy feeding the many ducks, geese and turtles that live at the lake. On Jan 24, 2009, Lake Ella hosted a group of Tibetan monks on their visit to Tallahassee, they spent a week creating a sand mandala at The Mary Brogan Museum of Science. The monks destroyed the mandala in a "special dissolution ritual" and brought the sand to Lake Ella "so that its healing energies would be dispersed throughout the world." On December 13, 2010, the monks arrived in Tallahassee for another visit, dismantled the new mandala on December 19. In 1986, Lake Ella underwent extensive rehabilitation including sediment removal, reshaping of the shoreline, reducing the number of stormwater inflow pipes, installation of an automatic alum treatment system.

Lake Ella receives stormwater runoff from an urban watershed, 157 acres in area. During a typical year the lake treats somewhere around 250 million gallons of stormwater runoff. During normal water elevations the lake stores 27 million gallons of water. During excessive rain events the lake can store an additional 9 million gallons. Pollutant treatment is obtained through an automated system that doses alum at six locations based on the volume of stormwater entering the lake. Alum, a substance used by some communities to treat drinking water, mixes with incoming stormwater and causes pollutants to settle to the lake bottom. Lake Ella sometimes floods after severe storms, which can cause the surrounding roads to be closed for a few days. Lake Ella @ Talgov.com Richard Devine Photos at Lake Ella U. S.
