Saudi Arabia to allow women into sports stadiums


91 Views

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.
