Saudi Arabia will host the 2029 Asian Winter Games at a mountain resort in the $500 billion flagship NEOM project. According to reports, the TROJENA development, which is scheduled to be finished in 2026, will have a nature reserve, a man-made freshwater lake, and outdoor skiing.
“We are proud to announce we have won the bid to host AWG TROJENA 2029”
Sports Minister Prince Abdulaziz Bin Turki Al-Faisal, commenting on Twitter, said: “With the unlimited support by the Saudi leadership and HRH Crown Prince to the sports sector we are proud to announce we have won the bid to host AWG TROJENA 2029 as the first country in western Asia.”
As part of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 development goal to lessen its dependency on oil and reshape the economy, including through the growth of sports, NEOM is Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s most ambitious undertaking.
