Saudi Arabia To Let Women Enter Sports Stadiums In 2018
Saudi Arabia will for the first time allow women to attend sports events, preparing special sections in three selected stadiums from early next year.
A statement from the country’s General Sports Authority, and carried by the state-run Saudi Press Agency, has indicated.
The stadiums in Jeddah, Dammam and Riyadh will be set up to accommodate families from early 2018, it had added.
Last month Saudi Arabia announced that, from June, women would be allowed to drive cars, ending the world’s only ban on female driving.
