Saudi Arabia: Saudi Women at Football Stadium?

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Saudi Arabia

Something interesting might happen tonight in Riyadh [1]. Saudi Arabia is going to play an international football match against Sweden, which pressured Saudis to allow women to attend the match. Sweden is going to play with their reserve team, as most of their stars refused to join the team for this match. However, according to FIFA website, the news that both Swedish and Saudi women would be blocked from attending the game did not go down well, Ahmed said.
