Three major cities in Saudi Arabia are officially opening their doors to women: Jeddah, Dammam and Riyadh, according to local officials. Preparations for the three stadiums are set to begin from early 2018, reports say, which would better accomodate women and families.
Restaurants, monitor screens and even cool cafes will be installed in the stadiums as part of new changes
Although certain stadiums in the Kingdom have allowed women to enter before, this is the first time that they will be legally allowed into stadiums. Up until not, these venues have been “men-only” areas.
