The plans were made public on Wednesday, the same day Saudi Arabia won the bid, by a delegation to the 33rd Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Congress in Bahrain.

The Riyadh Stadium, the Qiddiya Stadium, and the Dammam Stadium are the three new stadiums that will be constructed for the event. Pictures of the stadiums that will host the 2027 AFC Asian Cup in Riyadh, Al-Khobar, and Dammam have been made public by SAFF.

With a capacity of 40,000 guests, the Qiddiya Stadium in Riyadh will be one of the masterpieces Saudi 2027 will deliver to Asia, the country's official Twitter account announced.

Out of the many stadiums to be rebuilt, The King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh will also host the Asian Cup matches. The stadium will be renovated, with extra seats added to accommodate 80,000 spectators, a track removed, and additional facilities built. The Prince Faisal Bin Fahd Stadium will also undergo modifications that involve the installation of seats. Up to 44,500 people can fit in the stadium post-renovation. Saudi Arabia will organize the event in three cities and ten stadiums.

For the first time ever, Saudi Arabia won the bid to host the 2027 AFC Asian Cup earlier on Wednesday in Bahrain. "The time has come for football in Asia to begin a new era. We are excited to deliver the greatest tournament in the competition's history!," said the Minister of Sport, Saudi Olympic president & Saudi 2027 bid Chairman Abdul Aziz.
