The FIFA World Cup is one of the biggest events in the world for one of the most popular sports in the world, football. Teams from around the world come together to see who can perform the best. It brings together some of the most highly skilled athletes in the world, today, and you’re probably dying to find out where to watch the FIFA World Cup in Dubai. Lucky for you, Godesto.com has put together all of the best fan zones in Dubai so you and likeminded others can enjoy the match together.
Atlantis The Palm
What it is: Of course, one of the most famous hotels in the world would make the list, with the Atlantis Hotel putting on what they’re naming the Ultimate World Cup Fan Zone. You’ll be able to watch every single match, live, to more than 2,000 fans from across Dubai. There’s going to be a massive screen with two areas for you to choose from. There’s going to be The Stadium, where regular fans can set up, relax and watch the match or you can opt instead for The Bench, where it’s a more casual seating area with a gaming vibe, head onto the PS4s and play your friends to see who comes out on top.
Where to go: Atlantis The Palm at the Palm Jumeirah.
When to go: The Fan Zone at the Atlantis at The Palm is ongoing throughout the whole FIFA World Cup Tournament.
How much it’ll cost: It’s free for ladies and just 100 AED (£20) for blokes, who’ll get two free drinks but if it’s a big match, you might want to book a table with a minimum spend of 1,000 AED (£200).
What it is: One of the most popular British pub hotspots in Dubai, Barasti is going to be hosting two different fan zones throughout the World Cup with their SuperDome and Middle deck. If you’re a mega fan, then head into the SuperDome to get huge screens, live music and room for more than 8,000 people. The middle-deck will be hosting a special air conditioned tent with a huge screen.
