As a symbol of our vision for Riyadh 2030, the bid motto – Transforming the Future – is unambiguous in its goals of inspiring new dreams, reaching new horizons and setting new standards for what it means to host the Asian Games. As such, Riyadh 2030 will reimagine the model of the Asian Games for a new era in a new kingdom: Ultra-modern yet steeped in history, determined but realistic, visually stunning and environmentally conscious.
The Riyadh 2030 bid sets out a pioneering yet utterly achievable blueprint to ensure the most thrilling Asian Games ever, set within the context of a vibrant, proud society, a thriving, diversifying economy and a progressive nation making a statement on the world’s sporting stage.
As a city, a whole country and an entire region that is evolving, embracing the future and setting new standards, we are committed to elevating the Games experience for all participants to a scale and quality never seen before. Saudi Arabia is ready to host the Asian Games in 2030. It is the dream of the entire nation.
We are a modern and secure country, one that is investing in good governance, transparency and technology, and one that can offer a real transformation for the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA): Universality. It would be the first time that Saudi Arabia has hosted the Games, opening them to new locations, and bringing the Universality concept to the OCA and the Olympic Movement. Hosting the Asian Games in Riyadh also offers the OCA a new opportunity for growth and expansion aligned to its mission to spread the values of sport and the Asian Olympic Movement to new territories and connect with a new community.
Saudi Arabia already has experience of delivering large-scale events and we are ready to host our first-ever major Games. Hosting the Riyadh 2030 Asian Games is a national priority – an expression of the will of the Saudi people to bring the Games to the Kingdom for the very first time.
With total and unwavering political and public support, our bid for the Asian Games is the Saudi sports movement’s number one objective – it is our top sporting priority above all else.
