Barca v Real in Dubai

Spanish giants to clash in football tournament

FC Barcelona will take on Real Madrid in Dubai this week.

Don’t expect to see Messi or Ronaldo though, as the two famous sides are sending their Indoor Masters League sides into battle in a five-a-side football championship at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

They will be joined by four of the UAE's leading clubs in an adrenaline-filled tournament from August 10 to 12.

The teams, featuring a host of former Spanish internationals and cup-winners, will battle it out on the turf pitch in the venue’s Shaikh Rashid Hall each evening from 9.30pm to 12.30am in front of up to 2,000 spectators.

The International Indoor Football Championship takes place alongside Dubai Sports World, the largest ever indoor sporting event in the UAE, organised by Dubai World Trade Centre in association with Dubai Sports Council which runs throughout July and August.
