Venue Plan: compact, iconic and well-connected
Our choice of venues has been developed around the determination to provide athletes with the best facilities while adhering to the recommendations of the Olympic Agenda 2020.
In order to reduce the costs of staging the Games, we are using existing venues wherever possible and temporary buildings wherever appropriate. New venues will only be built where clear legacy needs have been identified and sporting and business plans developed for post-Games use. Riyadh 2030 will pursue ‘excellence without extravagance’.
For athletes performing outside the main venues, we have selected locations that provide excellent facilities and spectacular backdrops.
The Riyadh 2030 Concept will shape the future of the city as an important hub to meet and satisfy the sporting, recreational, social and cultural needs of the current and future generations.
