Saudi Arabia has for the first time allowed women to spectate at a football match, part of an easing of strict rules on gender separation by the ultra-conservative Muslim country, a BBC News report said.
Following the opening in Jeddah, the stadium in Riyadh will open its doors to women on Saturday, followed by the western city of Dammam on Thursday.
Friday's match was played between Al-Ahli F.C. and Al-Batin F.C.
Lamya Khaled Nasser, a 32-year-old from Jeddah, told Agence France-Press she was proud and looking forward to the match.
"I am very excited". The rest of the country's football grounds will be ready for female fans by the beginning of the next sporting season.
In the stadium, keeping in mind the women spectators, a "family entrance" was created. "With you, the scene is complete".
The Saudi General Sports Authority made a statement that it is ready to make all the compulsory preparations to generate an attractive sports ambiance for families and to make sure their privacy.
Construction teams had scrambled to build female toilets and line off a women-only parking lot ahead of the game.
However, the women were segregated in the stands from the male-only crowd with designated seating in the so-called "family section" at King Abdullah Sports City stadium, media reported.
