World Cup viewing

The World Cup mania seem to have taken Dubai by storm. Almost every club, hotel and bars are showing the matches on huge screens with an ambience that mirrors that of the stadiums. You can even see team flags painted on the faces of the fans.

In UAE, the world cup is being broadcasted only on 1 channel, which is charging a premium for showing the matches. This makes the fans want to rush to their favorite venues and watch the matches in groups. The effect is awesome!

One of the particularly popular is the World Cup Fan Park, at the Trade Center exhibition halls. It has a cinema size screen with seatings just like a stadium. You can get refreshments from stalls or from stand-guys roaming around with drink-trays hanging from their necks.

Upon a goal, the whole arena is roaring with cheers and moans from both the teams’ supporters.

No matter where you go, the spirit is universal. Dubai people have found an exciting and indulging reason to stay out till late night everyday.

Do try and visit these places. The security implemented ensures that you can enjoy with your family!
