Saudi Arabia bid to host Asian Winter Games in TROJENA, NEOM

The Saudi Olympic & Paralympic Committee (SOPC) has officially submitted a letter of interest to the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) with regard to hosting the 10th Asian Winter Games (AWG) slated for 2029 in TROJENA, NEOM’s global destination for mountain tourism.

The letter included a brief introduction about the Kingdom’s ambitious Vision 2030 which will support TROJENA to host one of the most significant sporting events in Asia. Once the bid is validated, more than 32 Asian countries are expected to participate in the event, to be held for the first time ever in West Asia.

The Asian Winter Games is an international multi-sport event held every four years for members of the Olympic Council of Asia, which features winter events. The 8th AWG was held in Sapporo, Japan in 2017, while the 9th edition is scheduled to be held in Gangwon in South Korea in 2025.
