Women in Saudi Arabia will for the first time be allowed to enter a sports stadium today to watch a football match between two local teams. 

They will however be separated by barriers from the male-only crowd. 

The stadiums have also been fitted with female prayer areas, restrooms, smoking areas as well as separate entrances and parking lots for female spectators. 

Thousands of Saudis have however taken to twitter to decry this innovation, stating that women should stay at home and take care of their families.

This decision comes after Riyadh announced it was lifting a ban prohibiting women from driving as well as reopening cinemas.
