Football

Football is one of the country’s most popular sports, with matches played at the stadium seven nights a week and for training at weekends.

The Arsenal Soccer School is also based at the stadium. Since October 2009, the school has provided progressive courses for children to help develop their confidence on the pitch. Our three 10-week courses run consecutively during Dubai school terms, catering to children aged between five and 18 years. Not only do they get to train on state-of-the art football pitches, but each season they get to meet their Arsenal heroes, who share footballing knowledge and show off their skills.

Our most regular bookings come through the Dubai Amateur Football League, which has used the stadium as one of its venues for several years. In 2014, we hosted the cup finals - rounding off a very eventful season.

With its world-class facilities, The Sevens Stadium has become a regular venue for international friendly matches. AC Milan, Real Madrid and Hamburg are among the clubs to have played at The Sevens.

With eight pitches available for football, you’re welcome to use our facilities for a friendly game of 5, 7 or 11 a-side. We’ll mark out the pitches with the right size and have the goals and flags out ready for you.

You can stay for a meal after training, or take a dip in the pool after you’ve worked up a sweat.

Simply fill out our booking form to reserve a pitch, or contact sports.events@thesevens.ae or +971 4 809 6605.
