Last week the stars of WWE traveled to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel, and the event has been a very hot topic due to the travel issues that many WWE Superstars had to deal with before they could leave the country.
WWE has now announced that they’ve expanded their partnership with the Saudi General Entertainment Authority, and that it will include a “second annual large-scale event.”
WWE issued the following:
“WWE® AND THE SAUDI GENERAL ENTERTAINMENT AUTHORITY EXPAND EVENT PARTNERSHIP
STAMFORD, CONN. and RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA, November 4, 2019 – Following the historic Crown Jewel event in Riyadh, WWE (NYSE: WWE) and the Saudi General Entertainment Authority (GEA) have expanded their live event partnership through 2027 to include a second annual large-scale event. WWE and GEA also continue to work towards the completion of a media agreement in the MENA region.
This long-term partnership demonstrates WWE and GEA’s commitment to bring sports entertainment to the region and supports Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.”
