- Two weeks left of EURO 2016 games at Dubai Sport City’s flagship venue
The UAE’s biggest indoor football fan zone, FOOTBALL FANFEST, has welcomed thousands of Euro 2016 supporters through its doors this summer and the excitement is set to continue.
Located right in the heart of Dubai Sports City’s Sports Village, the state-of-the-art fully air-conditioned and family friendly venue has already been the destination of choice for football fans, looking to cheer on their teams into the final leg of the playoffs.
FOOTBALL FANFEST not only boasts cinema style seating and six mega HD screens to watch all the action, there are also 28 VIP booths, which can seat up to 12 people, which includes their own private 60” HD television – an ideal spot to congregate with family and friends. There are also several half-time refreshments options which include food trucks by The Shebi and Calle Tacos, as well as a variety of hop and grape drinks served from 4pm. Finally, adding to the football experience and keeping the whole family entertained is a unique fan zone where fans and kids can test their skills on footie themed activities such as zorb football, sumo soccer, the foo’tee golf challenge, human foosball and penalty shootout competitions which give you a chance to qualify for a draw to win AED 10,000.
Maqbul Dudhia, GM of Sports and Events Business at Dubai Sports City said: “The FOOTBALL FANFEST zone, located in the heart of Dubai Sports City’s Sports Village, has been a tremendous success however we want to ensure as many people as possible get to visit and enjoy the UAE’s biggest fan zone before it’s too late.
“The FOOTBALL FANFEST zone really echoes the spirit and ethos of Dubai Sports City by bringing families, friends and sport enthusiasts together to enjoy taking part and watching sport right at the heart of the community.”
The FOOTBALL FANFEST fun doesn’t stop there. With less than two weeks of EURO 2016 games still to be played, Dubai Sports City FOOTBALL FANFEST is the only place for football fans to watch the match and soak up the atmosphere.
Rehan Merchant, Group CEO, ENG said: “It’s the next best place to watch the Euros in the UAE if you can’t be in person in France. What we have done with the creation of the FOOTBALL FANFEST is really innovative and puts the fans first.”
