What to expect at Fan City..
Promising giant screens, a slew of soccer-style entertainment, and a festival-like family atmosphere, the new fan zone at Expo City Dubai will offer an electric atmosphere for all football fans throughout the tournament from November 20 to December 18.
The area has two zones – the family-friendly Jubilee Park and a deluxe experience at Al Wasl.
Jubilee Park will be open to football fans and visitors from the day the tournament kicks off on Sunday, November 20.
Featuring jumbo screens, table-top games and plenty of football-themed games, Jubilee Park sounds like the perfect place for family bonding.
Jubilee Park can hold 10,000 spectators, and will feature bean bags and diverse food trucks serving a wide variety of culinary options. Additionally, Budweiser, the Official Beer of the FIFA World Cup, will provide a licensed area for legal drinking age visitors, as well as a shisha lounge.
Other attractions and activities include face-painting, agility courses, foot volley courts, penalty kick activations, and DJ’s spinning decks during half-time.
Jubilee Park will open from 5pm to 1.30am on weekdays, and 12pm to 1.30am on weekends.
Al Wasl will be a premium experience for visitors, that will begin on December 3, as the tournament gets underway.
Visitors can expect a VIP guest immersive experience with four super-sized screens that will broadcast the matches live, augmented by in-game graphics projected on the dome.
The audience can enjoy matches, with team anthems, a flag-raising ceremony, and pre- and post-game entertainment taking excitement levels to fever pitch.
Al Wasl can seat up to 2,500 visitors, with general admission, VIP hospitality packages and VVIP box seats on offer. Hospitality guests will also receive a complimentary one-day Expo City Dubai Attraction Pass valid until December 31.
