Saudi Arabia has won the bid to organise the Asian Winter Games in 2029.

The Games will be held in Trojena, Neom.

Neom is a part of the kingdom’s Vision 2030 national development plan into which Prince Mohammed bin Salman has poured hundreds of billions of dollars, with the aim of transforming the Saudi economy, creating jobs for citizens, and reducing its dependence on oil.

The Asian Winter Games is an international multi-sport event. It is held every four years for members of the Olympic Council of Asia.
