Saudi Arabia to allow women into sports stadiums
Monday, 30 October 2017 - 9:47
Saudi Arabia will allow women to attend sports events in stadiums for the first time from next year.
Families will be able to enter the stadiums in three major cities - Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam.
It is another move towards giving more freedom to Saudi women, who face strict gender segregation rules, and follows the historic lifting of a driving ban.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is leading a major drive to modernise Saudi society and boost the economy.
