Saudi Arabia to allow women into sports stadiums
Women in Saudi Arabia will finally be able to watch sporting events in all-male stadium from next year, the country’s General Sports Authority said.
The planned law change comes as part of Saudi's reforms to give females more rights in the deeply conservative Arab state, the Mirror reported.
Earlier this year, the Sunni Muslim Kingdom granted women the right to drive in the country for the first time, while rules are being improved to improve work place opportunities.
And now women will be allowed into stadiums in Jeddah, Dammam and Riyadh - with the arenas currently being prepared to accommodate families in early 2018.
