Ash Shaikh Hasan bin Abdullah Al Ash Shaik, King Saud University, Riyadh 12372, Saudi Arabia
Yellow and Blue
The stadium, having opened just eight years ago, is a bowl-like stadium as most modern stadiums are nowadays. It is, however, unique in the way that there is no wall from the stand to the outside, just a roof held up by big concrete beams.
The section of the roof over the stadium’s West Stand is bent over, emphasizing the stand’s main role, with there being a lavish presidential suite on top.
The roof does not cover all of the seats in the stands due to the country’s lack of rain, so protection from the rain is not needed. The roof ensures the sunlight has good access to the pitch and enables it to support artificial lighting around the stadium.
There is sufficient parking around the stadium, with five parking facilities and a further parking lot for VIP guests.
For those attending with their family and wanting to sit in the family section, these sections are located in Zones A and B.
Alawwal Park sits in the middle of King Saud University Campus, which means there are not many options for food or drink within a few minutes walk.
Attached to the stadium, you do have a Subway, a Jan Burger and a Starbucks.
The best place to go would be if you head North East you will come across a shopping complex a brisk 20-minute walk away. Here you will find a whole host of food and drink options ranging from cafes selling local food to restaurants such as Salt, which sells hamburgers.

To The North
The closest parking area to the North of the stadium is located quite a walk away at just over 30 minutes and is located just off of Prince Turki Bin Abdulaziz Al Awal Road. Around this area there is a lot of other small parking spaces so there will be plenty of options to chose from.
To The West
If you head west from the stadium, you will come across another huge car park with space for hundreds of cars which is located just in front of the Prince Naif Bin Abdulaziz Health Resort off Ash Shaikh Hasan bin Abdullah Al Ash Shaikh road.
To The East
East of the stadium is a smaller car park which is sandwiched in-between the KSU Football Field, KSU Swimming Pool and is just behind the KSU Tennis Courts.
