TAIF
— The Ministry of Sports assigned Hanan Al-Qurashi as president of Wej Club in Taif after the dissolution of the board of directors, which was chaired by Sati Al-Otaibi. This makes Al-Qurashi the first Saudi woman to lead a sports club.

For nearly a year, Al-Qurashi remained the club's vice president, also the highest position ever held by a Saudi woman. She is considered one of the top businesswomen in the Kingdom.

“I look forward to a successful sporting future for Wej Club, with the support of the people of Taif,” Al-Qurashi said.
