Exciting times for sport in the Kingdom - for fans, participants and those that hope to build a career in sport.  

At the National Olympic Committees of the G20 conference in Riyadh, Prince Abdulaziz Bin Turki Al-Faisal noted in his opening remarks that "the sports sector is essential for the growth of the economy, health care systems and the prosperity of society ... and after the global crisis [of] COVID-19 [the world] needs sports more than ever to restore contact, recover and continue."  

The Saudi Women's Football League kicked off its first tournament this week, Saudi Cycling and the Sports Federation got their wheels rolling, literally, with four races, and the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Saudi Watersports Federation, with the two entities working together to generate sustainable, localized jobs in the watersports sector.
