In a groundbreaking announcement on Monday, the Qiddiya Investment Company (QIC) revealed the launch of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Stadium, a futuristic multi-functional arena set to redefine the global standard for sports and entertainment facilities. Named after Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince, and Prime Minister, the stadium is poised to become one of the world’s most advanced sporting venues.

Located on the 200-meter-high peak of Mount Tuwaiq, just 40 minutes from Riyadh, the 45,000-seat stadium is designed by the renowned global architectural firm Populous. It boasts a range of cutting-edge features, making it a pioneer in stadium design and technology. The stadium is expected to serve as the home for the Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal clubs and host major local and international football competitions.

The Prince Mohammed bin Salman Stadium is also being considered as a potential venue for matches during the 2034 FIFA World Cup, following the Kingdom’s recent successful bid to host the prestigious tournament. Additionally, the stadium is set to host significant regional events, including the Saudi King Cup, the Asian Cup, and potentially the 2034 Asian Games.

Populous has designed the world’s first fully integrated stadium featuring a retractable roof, pitch, and an impressive LED wall. This wall will serve as a dynamic portal for live event broadcasts, high-definition films, and laser shows, providing an immersive experience for spectators and revealing stunning views of Qiddiya City when not in use.

QIC aims to revolutionize traditional stadium experiences with its unique design and technological features, intending to attract visitors from around the world. Notable technologies include foldable floor, ceiling, and upper walls, offering captivating views of the lower city, including the Six Flags Qiddiya City and water park.

Abdullah bin Nasser Al-Daoud, the Managing Director of QIC, commented on the launch, stating, “Qiddiya aims to become a global sports, entertainment, and cultural hub, featuring Prince Mohammed bin Salman Stadium and advanced technology for world-class events and competitions, showcasing its beautiful location on Tuwaiq Mountain.”

The venue is designed to host year-round events in climate-controlled facilities, with an eco-friendly cooling lake built under the stadium. This innovative lake will utilize rainwater captured from the stadium and its surroundings to pre-cool the air conditioning system, reducing energy consumption.

The Prince Mohammed bin Salman Stadium is projected to attract 7.6 million annual visitors, significantly contributing to the goals of Vision 2030 for a vibrant society, a thriving economy, and an ambitious nation. As Saudi Arabia continues to position itself as a global leader in sports and entertainment, the stadium represents a symbol of progress and innovation on the international stage.
