Welcome to Dubai Sports City
Dubai Sports City is a destination of enduring spirit and passion, a place whose heart and soul is expressed in rich iconography, timeless rituals and modern heroes. A place where sport is life, champions live, and legends are made. With over 50 million square feet of sporting venues, academies, exceptional homes, cultural activities and retail developments, Dubai Sports City is inspired by the greatest cities in the world, but at its heart beats the very essence of sport.
Dubai Sports City is the world's first purpose-built sports city. Set on 50 million square feet of land within the Dubailand development, Dubai Sports City will feature four magnificent stadia: a 60,000 seat multi-purpose outdoor stadium, a 25,000 capacity cricket stadium, a 10,000 seat multi-purpose indoor arena, and a field hockey venue for 5,000 spectators.
In addition, Dubai Sports City will be the venue for Ernie Els' first golf course design in the Middle East: an 18-hole championship course named The Dunes which will be the centrepiece of a luxury golf residential community called Victory Heights.
Dubai Sports City will host the first purpose-built Manchester United Soccer Schools facility in the world as well as the International Cricket Council's (ICC) own Global Cricket Academy, a David Lloyd Tennis Academy and the first Butch Harmon School of Golf outside the United States. The academies area will also house a 3,000 square metre gymnasium and an olympic-length swimming pool.
In addition to the sporting facilities, Dubai Sports City will boast all of the residential and commercial developments expected in a purpose-built city, including international schools, world-class medical facilities, hotels, leisure opportunities and a well-being and lifestyle country club, the Next Generation Club. The primary shopping destination at Dubai Sports City will be a sports-themed retail mall with a leasing capacity of approximately 1.2 million square feet. This mall will be complimented by a multitude of shops, markets, retail plazas and boutiques.
The first phase of Dubai Sports City, which will include the golf course, sports academies and other facilities, as well as the opening phase of the Victory Heights residential community, will be completed by the end of 2007, with the entire development set for completion by 2010. Read More....
