Tournaments take place across a range of top class venues, including the Sevens Stadium Dubai......

7he Sevens Stadium

Many of this year’s games will be played at the 7he Sevens Stadium. Although best known for rugby at the moment, the 7he Sevens Stadium complex is also an international standard cricket venue.

Two years ago Emirates Airline, one of the world's leading sport sponsors, along with the support of the Government of Dubai, completed the construction of this new purpose-built sports facility with 6 sports pitches, netball & tennis courts, a players club and a banquet hall. The venue played host to the 2008 world record-breaking Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens and the 2009 Rugby World Cup Sevens just a few months later.

The venue features a permanent grandstand with 4,000 seats while temporary stands are erected around this permanent structure increasing the capacity to up to 50,000.

Hospitality areas, broadcast and medical facilities and changing rooms also feature in the design as well as a 30-metre wide ‘village’ area, featuring cafes and food outlets.

Pitch 2 has been constructed in a bowl shape and is enclosed on three sides by a grass embankment, enabling a crowd of 15,000 to enjoy the sporting action, while a nearby sports complex and clubhouse will eventually include provision for tennis, squash, basketball and badminton as well as a gymnasium and swimming pool.

Zayed Stadium Nursery Grounds

The state of the art Sheikh Zayed Stadium is arguably one of the world's finest cricket grounds. It was opened in May 2004, cost $22 million to build, and has a capacity of 20,000. The Zayed Stadium and Nursery Grounds boasts five turf wickets (international standard), three all-weather cement pitches, and high performance flood lighting. The venue is widely used by professional sides, including many of the English County teams, many of whom Sport Arabia Worldwide host.

Ajman Ground

A stunning, high-quality, floodlight, venue in the desert. The Ajman Oval is the first of its kind in the emirate and was built by its owners by hand, who are all passionate about cricket.

Al Dhaid Cricket Village

Al Dhaid Cricket Village might just be the most remote venue

It has hosted the Asian Cricket Council Twenty20 Trophy and is a first-class venue, hosting matches between China and Afghanistan, Kuwait and Qatar.

It also hosts local games such as the Al Dhaid Gold Cup tournament. There are five cement wickets and one turf wicket at the ground, all of which are floodlit.
