HRH Prince Bandar Bin Khalid Al Faisal

As Chairman of both the Saudi Equestrian Authority and the Jockey Club of Saudi Arabia (JCSA), Prince Bandar plays a key role in the advancement of equestrian sports in Saudi Arabia.

With the backing of the Saudi Arabian government he led a large team to successfully deliver the 2020 Saudi Cup to a very tight timeframe and now turns his attention to the 2021 Saudi Cup.

Under Prince Bandar’s Chairmanship the JCSA will work to develop Saudi Arabia’s standing in the world of horse racing, utilising strong ties with the sport’s governing bodies to shape the Kingdom’s domestic and international race calendars.

Prince Bandar was appointed as an Advisor to the Royal Court of Saudi Arabia in May 2017 and is the Chair of the Board of the Arab Thought Foundation, an international NGO which promotes cohesion and dialogue between businesses, academia and society to encourage development in the region.

Prince Bandar is also a Member of the General Assembly of the King Faisal Foundation, a charity supporting research, education and social welfare around the world.
