Today A Historic Day for Saudi Women; Attend A Soccer Match for the First Time


In Saudi Arabia, Friday’s match between rivals Al-Hilal and Al-Ittihad at Riyadh’s King Fahd International Stadium is historical as it will be the first time in the country’s history, women will be allowed to join men in the stands.

The historic moments comes in the wake of last October’s decision by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to eventually allow women to drive and have greater access in multiple spheres of everyday life.
