Riyadh Stadium – design description

The stadium project was prepared in connection with Saudi Arabia's bid to host the 2027 Asian Cup football tournament. The venue is to be built on the northern outskirts of Riyadh, near Princess Nora bint Abdul Rahman University, on the road leading to the international airport. The stadium will have a football layout and will accommodate 22,000 spectators.

The facility is to be equipped with mobile stands, allowing the capacity to be adjusted and the size of the playing field to suit different events. The main stand, with extensive facilities and a covered auditorium, will be located on the west side. The stadium will offer 600 seats in the hospitality areas and 200 in the royal box.

Four floodlighting masts will be erected in the corners, and there will be two video screens behind the gates. Surrounding the arena will be car parks and four full-size training pitches. The surrounding area will be landscaped with drought-tolerant, naturally occurring vegetation in the region. Access to the stadium will be possible by metro.
