Barasti to launch massive Rugby World Cup fan zone

The Rugby World Cup kicks off this week (if you thought the summer of sport was over, you couldn’t be more wrong), and rugby fever is sweeping Dubai ahead of this year’s tournament in Japan.

And while there are tonnes places to get in on the action in Dubai, there probably won’t be many bars going as all-out as one of the city’s legendary sports bars and beach clubs.

That’s because Barasti is going to be turning the whole middle deck of the bar into what it’s calling the “ultimate fan zone for the Rugby World Cup. From Friday September 20 until the conclusion of the tournament on Saturday November 2, the bar will kitted out entirely in astroturf, and laying on a whole bunch of stuff to keep you coming back throughout the competition.

We’re talking games, deals, giveaways, rugby-themed activations and more. If that’s not enough, one fan will even walk away with a trip to the world cup final on Saturday November 2 in Yokohama City, Japan.
