In a unique gesture to support the Saudi national football team in its World Cup finals in Russia, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (KFSH&RC) in Riyadh launched a sports tourism program for some staff members to help them participate in the World Cup.

It also aims to express our solidarity and support for the national team in its international outing in the World Cup finals, as stated by him.
