The beautiful game

In a city as international as Dubai, the world’s most popular game unquestionably has a strong foothold in Dubai Sports City. A full-size indoor pitch with FIFA 2-star approved competition turf ensures athletes can enjoy the sport year-round and two more full-size outdoor pitches accommodate the variety of leagues and programs that are held at Dubai Sports City.

Practice makes perfect,
passion makes professional.

Learn to dribble
before you run.
