If you missed your chance to support your team at the stadium, football fans can head to Aloft City Centre Deira’s WXYZ Bar to catch all the action instead.
The bar will be playing each of the tournament’s matches, even opening at 3pm during earlier games.
Not only will guests have a place to support their teams, but they’ll be treated with special promotions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
On Man Cave Tuesdays, gents will get a complimentary bottle of hops to kick off the evening, while other house beverages only cost Dhs25.
Wednesdays is all about the ladies, where they will be treated to pink beverages completely free.
As for Thursdays, from 4pm until 2am, expect all house beverages at the bar to cost Dhs25. That’s one of the cheapest ways to cheer on your team with drink in hand.
Matches will be played until Friday February 1, with upcoming matches this week including Korea Republic vs. China P.R. (Wednesday January 16, 5.30pm), Oman vs. Turkmenistan (Thursday January 17, 5.30pm) and Japan vs. Uzbekistan (Thursday January 17, 5.30pm).
