5 best places to watch The World Cup in the UAE


The World Cup starts today, June 14. Games will be held at 12 stadiums in 11 Russian cities. Not everyone can see live impressive goals in the performance of the stars of world football. We collected 5 places with the most suitable atmosphere for viewing matches, especially for residents and guests of Dubai, who will be in the emirate during the most “football” month of the year.

1. The air-conditioned sports lounge on the beach between Al Hamra Village and Al-Marjan Island will be open. Sports Lounge, the largest themed tent in the emirate, which will offer sports lovers a show of matches.

The lounge opens on 15 June. There will be installed 27 screens for comfortable viewing of events. Separate private areas are ready for the guests, which can accommodate groups of 8 to 12 people.

JW Marriott Dubai will be responsible for the menu in the Sports Lounge.

2. Atlantis, The Palm

In honor of the World Cup in the cult hotel a separate zone will operate from June 14 to July 15, 2018. It will broadcast all the matches of the Championship. Entrance to the zone for women is free, and men will have to pay 100 dirhams ($ US 27,2), which will be included to the cost of food and drinks.

One of the parts of the zone will be the main “tribune” for fans. The second part will offer a more relaxed atmosphere.

In addition, on the occasion of the event, a special football menu was developed. It will be offered for the whole month. Also, various entertaining programs, contests and prizes are expected.
