In December 1990, the Saudi Federation decided to merge all the football League with the King's Cup in one tournament and the addition of the Golden Box. The Golden Box would be an end of season knockout competition played between the top four teams of the regular league season.

These teams would play at a semi-final stage to crown the champions of Saudi Arabia.

Al-Shabab came out on top and won their first championship. At the other end of the table, promoted sides Al-Najma and Al-Arabi struggled and were relegated.
