WWE LIVE returns to Saudi Arabia

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia — WWE LIVE will return to Saudi Arabia with three events at King Abdullah Sports City Sports Hall (AlJawhara Stadium) in Jeddah on Thursday, 8 Oct., Friday, 9 Oct., and Saturday, 10 Oct., marking the first time WWE LIVE has been to Jeddah.

Tickets will be available on Monday, 10 Aug. at noon KSA time, through www.ticketmaster.ae or by calling +971 4 3662289.

Fans attending WWE LIVE will be able to see their favorite Superstars, including WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, John Cena, Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose, Ryback, Big Show, The Miz and WWE tag team Lucha Dragons.*

“After successful shows in Abu Dhabi earlier this year, we are excited to return to the Middle East and underscore our commitment to the region,” said Gerrit Meier, WWE Executive Vice President, International. “Fans can expect WWE LIVE to deliver the same non-stop action and family fun that they know and love from our programming on MBC, OSN and OSN WWE Network.”

The events represent the second collaboration between WWE and FLASH Entertainment, headquartered in Abu Dhabi. Alongside their local Saudi partners, TIME Events, FLASH Entertainment has worked with WWE to bring WWE LIVE to the Middle East.

“We are delighted to be working alongside WWE and Time Events again,” said John Lickrish, CEO, FLASH Entertainment. “Last year’s event proved to be enormously successful and this year we intend to raise the bar even higher for the people of Saudi Arabia to enjoy an unforgettable show.”

“TIME Events strives to provide fans in Saudi with the most popular content and entertainment, and WWE LIVE is in high demand,” said Hector Alegre, Managing Director, TIME Events. “We look forward to partnering with WWE and FLASH to create a memorable occasion that will be enjoyed by thousands of WWE fans across Saudi Arabia.”

WWE programming, including WWE Raw and WWE SmackDown, air every week on OSN. In addition, OSN WWE Network launched earlier this year. WWE Network is the only place to get all 12 WWE pay-per-view events LIVE at no additional charge, and offers one-of-a-kind, 24/7 scheduled programming and 25 hours of new video-on-demand content each month.
