Dubai Sports City (DSC) is a 50-million square feet mixed use development that will be the world’s first integrated purpose-built sports city. The development is being built around five major sports venues and features a series of major sports academy facilities.
Already fully operational is the 25,000-seat capacity Dubai International Stadium, an 18-hole championship golf course The Els Club – Ernie Els’ first golf course design concept in the Middle East – and its state-of-the-art Clubhouse including multiple dining options, the International Cricket Council (ICC) head office and the ICC Academy, the Dubai Sports City Academies Campus including a full-sized Indoor Dome (believed to be the only one if its kind in the UAE) which is home to Spanish Soccer Schools runs by former Real Madrid and Spain legend Michel Salgado and includes outdoor grass and artificial turf pitches, and the Butch Harmon School of Golf.
The Victory Heights golf course villa community, set on the fairways of the prestigious Els Club golf course, is thriving, and also located in DSC is the Bradenton Preparatory Academy, an American curriculum school managed by GEMS Education that has been open since 2009.
Access to Dubai Sports City is now easier than ever with the opening of the Hessa Street and Al Fay Road extensions.
