Trojena is known to be one of Neom’s biggest projects, set to be completed in 2026. The resort will host a beautiful nature reserve, access to winter sports, and a man-made freshwater lake. This isn’t the first important sport event the Kingdom would be hosting, as next year’s World Combat Games, 2025 Asian Indoor Martial Arts Games, and the 2034 Asian Games are all set to take place in Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Olympic and Paralympic Committee announced the good news on their official Twitter
