Hitting a remarkable milestone even ahead of its conclusion, the 2023/24 edition of Riyadh Season has broken all previous visitor records.

In the first month alone more than 5 million people had visited Riyadh Season. Not expected to end until April, the Saudi General Entertainment Authority (GEA) announced this week that the fourth edition of Riyadh Season had successfully reached its target number of visitors before the conclusion of the event.

Turki Al-Sheikh, Chairman of the GEA's Board of Directors, confirmed that over 15 million people from around the globe have already visited the zones of Riyadh Season to partake in the festivities and celebrations.

This record-breaking figure was achieved with many major events still to come in the next few months, before the official end of the season.

Anticipation is building for upcoming pivotal events, including the Riyadh Season Cup Championship, the newly launched Riyadh Season Snooker Championship (to be known as 'Riyadh Season Ball'), alongside several adrenaline-pumping UFC fights and boxing match showdowns, with massive names like Anthony Joshua on the billing.

These incredible events, alongside a selection of intriguing new zones that have never been seen before, it is no wonder that this edition of Riyadh Season celebrations has drawn such as large crowd already.

The inaugural edition of the Riyadh Season in 2019 drew a crowd of over 9.6 million visitors, and by the third edition in 2022, the attendance surged to more than 13 million visitors.
