Women to be allowed on to adapted football terraces in Saudi Arabia
Sunday 29 January 2012
Women are to be allowed to attend football matches for the first time in Saudi Arabia, according to a government-run newspaper.
Officials said that women will eventually be able to watch matches at the Jeddah stadium, but will need to wait until specially constructed private cabins and balconies are completed in 2014.
Saudi Arabia's interpretation of Islam prohibits unrelated men and women from mingling in public.
Women were only recently granted to right to vote.
