Sports

Men can often be found playing sports. Women rarely participate in sports, and always away from the presence of men; this often leads to indoor gyms. Even though association football is the most popular sport, Saudi Arabia has recently participated in the Summer Olympic Games and in international competitions in volleyball and other sports.

The Saudi Arabian national youth baseball team has also participated in the Little League World Series.

The Saudi Arabia national football team is often most known for competing four consecutive times in the FIFA World Cup and six times in the AFC Asian Cup, which the team won three times and was runner-up three times.

Some popular football players include Majed Abdullah, Mohamed Al-Deayea, Sami Al-Jaber, Saeed Al-Owairan, Fahad Al-Bishi, Mohaisen Al-Jam’an, Mohammad Massad and Yousuf Al-Thunayan.
