The Sports Boulevard Foundation, chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has approved the designs for the Global Sports Tower, set to become the world’s tallest sports tower, Wego reports. This landmark is a key element of the Sports Boulevard project along the Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Road, aligning with Saudi Vision 2030’s goals of economic diversification and urban development.


The Global Sports Tower will play a crucial role in enhancing Riyadh’s global standing and improving the city’s quality of life. Its strategic location and innovative design are expected to elevate Riyadh among the top ten economies globally, making it a focal point of modernization and progress in the region.

The Sports Boulevard project spans 135 kilometers and integrates extensive green spaces, over 50 sports facilities, and various recreational zones. This initiative aims to create a dynamic urban environment that promotes community engagement and economic growth, reflecting Saudi Arabia’s commitment to sustainable development.

Featuring world-class amenities such as the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall at 98 meters and a 250-meter running track, the Global Sports Tower will cater to both elite athletes and the general public. These facilities are designed to encourage sports participation at all levels, contributing to a healthier and more active society in line with Saudi Vision 2030’s objectives.
