Will take part in Saudi Arabia.

They will even built a city (Trajena).

Sounds like another marketing gag to me.

This should probably be in general or debates.

What Saudi are doing have nothing to do with sports. Ok, maybe 2% sport.

I flew into Riyadh a few years ago on a stopover, miles and miles and flat sand.

If they want Ronaldo to play there or host boxing matches, fine but a winter games will just destroy the environment.

Crazy.

May take part in Saudi Arabia. Trojena is running behind already, and there are only so many Sri Lankan semi-slave workers whose dead bodies you can throw at a project before it starts working against you.

In the wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2029_Asian_Winter_Games

one source they give is: https://ocasia.org/news/3399-saudi-arabias-trojena-neom-city-to-host-remarkable-asian-winter-games-2029.html

and that is from the official Olympic committee of Asia website, so I assume this to be a done deal.
