Dubai is renown for it`s inspirational design and engineering. Possibly one of the fastest growing countries in the World, it`s fast growing into the place to be if you`ve got some cash to throw about.
The country have invested heavily into something called Dubai Sports City, the world`s first integrated sports city and cornerstone project of Dubailand. There are two sporting venues planned, initially a 60,000-seater multi-purpose outdoor stadium and a 10,000-seater multi-purpose indoor stadium. Both will be completed by the end of 2009 – if only the FA were as organised when it came to the new Wembley Stadium!
Check out the official Dubai Sports Land website.
The 60,000 multi-purpose stadium will fully comply to specifications for international football, rugby, American football and athletics events, while the 10,000 seat indoor multi-purpose stadium will allow for a wide range of sporting events including ice hockey, basketball, tennis, and volleyball. In entertainment mode, the venue will be capable of hosting concerts and other major public gatherings.
Once complete, both venues will add to the advanced sports infrastructure of Dubai Sports City. A 25,000 capacity cricket stadium and a 5,000-seater hockey stadium, both of which are due for completion in early 2008, complete the quartet of major stadia.
Executives are confident that the FIFA-standard multi-purpose outdoor stadium and the indoor stadium will both prove worthy venues for international sporting events and world class entertainment shows and concerts.
