Saudi Women Spotted In Stadium For The First Time In History(Photos) by Explorers(m): 5:08am On Jan 13
Saudi women and girls queued outside football stadiums on Friday to watch their first live soccer matches after the kingdom lifted a ban on them attending.

However, they will still be separated from the male crowd in designated 'family sections' which include separate entrances, parking lots, prayer rooms, restrooms and smoking areas.


The move is part of Saudi Arabia's drive to grant women greater rights, with women being allowed to drive from June for the first time.

Dozens of Saudi women and girls queued outside the King Abdullah Sports City stadium in the Red Sea city of Jeddah on Friday to watch their first live game of soccer


Many used the hashtag to write that women's place should be in the home, focusing on their children and preserving their faith, and not out at a stadium where male crowds frequently curse and chant raucously.


Saudi Arabia's 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is King Salman's son and heir, is seen as the driving force behind these changes.

He is set to inherit a country where more than half the population is under 25 years-old and hungry for change.

Rather than grant citizens greater political rights, the crown prince has instead looked to boost his popularity by curbing the influence of ultraconservatives.


His reforms are also aimed in part at raising local spending on entertainment as the country faces years of budget deficit amid continued lower oil prices.

The first stadium to open its doors to women was in the Red Sea city of Jeddah for a match between Saudi soccer teams Al-Ahli and Al-Batin on Friday evening.

The national stadium in the capital, Riyadh, will open to women a day later, on Saturday, followed by the western city of Dammam next Thursday.

These stadiums were built with hundreds of millions of dollars when oil prices were nearly double what they are now.

The government spent lavishly on the stadiums in an effort to appease young Saudis and provide spaces for fans eager to cheer on local clubs, as well as hold national parades and ceremonies.

CHANGE!! The only constant thing.
I believe the other places/States, who have fashioned their lifestyle and society to conform with Saudi Arabia's ultraconservative culture will see the light as well.

it's really bad to be a female in a Muslim society


Muslim women aren't allowed to watch TV because they called it haram and the offense is punishable under Islamic law...that is too bad

it won't happen believe me...there's freedom to live the way you want as long as it's not against the tenets of Islam.. Allowing women to move about freely, drive themselves, go to stadia to watch sports, cinema are not against Islam as long as inter mingling between opposite sex is controlled and avoided just like they are doing now with separate sections for each gender
Saudi will never be like uae with the way uae is gradually turning to western states
