In a city as international as Dubai, the world’s most popular game unquestionably has a strong foothold. Needless to say, then, that football has quite the comfortable home at Dubai Sports City. A full-size indoor pitch with FIFA 2-star approved competition turf ensures athletes can enjoy the sport year-round, while two more full-size outdoor pitches accommodate the variety of leagues and programs that are held at Dubai Sports City.
For children of walking age up to 5 years, Socatots is the world’s first soccer-specific physical play program that offers a fun start to soccer. Socatots teaches basic ball skills, movement and co-ordination exercises in a fun and playful environment.

The governing body of world cricket, The International Cricket Council (ICC), moved its headquarters to Dubai Sports City in 2009 helping to solidify the sport’s growing presence in Dubai and the region, and continuing to oversee play in its 106 member countries.
The ICC Academy, its extensive practice pitches, and the Dubai International Stadium make Dubai Sports City not only the premier place for Cricket in Dubai, but the in the entire region.
Facilities include two full-sized, one-day international floodlit ovals, alongside the ICC Academy’s state-of-the-art building and pitches, which offer indoor and outdoor training facilities. These include technology tools for bowlers and batsmen, practice pitches of different surfaces, and indoor nets.
