Net free seats to AFC Asian Cup 2019 at The Dubai Mall

A six-day football festival is coming to The Dubai Mall next week – and you can net free tickets to the historic AFC Asian Cup 2019.

An interactive roadshow will debut in Dubai on Sunday (August 26) and give passionate fans the chance to learn, play, show off their skills and engage with cutting-edge virtual reality technology in three distinct zones of engagement.

Plus, the first 50 attendees will be given free match tickets to the biggest-ever Asian Cup when it comes to the UAE in January.

“Through the power of sport, we want to connect communities and these interactive roadshows are the perfect way to deliver the excitement and energy of the AFC Asian Cup to people across the UAE,” said His Excellency Aref Hamad Al Awani, tournament director of the Local Organising Committee.

“There is something for everybody at the roadshow, from fans and active footballers to people curious about the history of the sport.
“I’m sure the roadshows will be extremely popular as they’re a great way for people to learn and play their part in bringing Asia together for the biggest sporting event ever hosted in the region.”

The six-day event will take place in the Star Atrium in the world’s biggest shopping mall The Dubai Mall, which is big enough to fit 189 football pitches.

A nominal entry fee of Dh25 will be in place – however, this will include a match ticket to the 24-nation tournament.

Head to the Virtual Zone and learn about the proud history of the AFC Asian Cup through the pow-er of cutting-edge VR headsets.

While at the Skills Zone, fans of all abilities can show off their skills in a series of accelerating chal-lenges in a football simulator.

Or join your favourite team at the Victory Zone, where augmented reality (Pokemon Go-style technology) will make you feel part of the club like never before.

Don’t forget, tickets for the tournament – which will be hosted across Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah next year – are available to purchase now at www.the-afc.com.
Dhs25 (including match day ticket). Open daily 10am-midnight. Aug 26-31. Star Atrium, Dubai Mall, Downtown Dubai (04 362 7500).
