A massive 73,000 sq ft complex area AHDAAF is all set to provide facility if two football pitches and batting nets. As we are moving towards the end of summer, the mercury is beginning to drop down a bit.
People can get ready to visit the great outdoors for exercise. There’s a brand-new football and cricket facility that’s launched in Dubai, and it has sports enthusiasts all excited about the upcoming events.
“Ahdaaf is an exciting addition to this world-famous shopping and entertainment hub, and is sure to be a winner with residents and businesses in the surrounding communities and beyond,” said Omar Khoory, Managing Director at Nakheel Malls.
Ahdaaf (translates to “goals” from Arabic), has opened on the roof of Dragon Mart 2 next door to International City. The place is promising a 73,000 sq ft complex that will be open all day until midnight in the winter season, with floodlights allowing to keep the facility all open after dark. There are two seven-a-side astroturf football pitches, and two cricket batting nets so everyone can capitalise on the great weather.
