Tickets are now on sale for one of the biggest days in the city’s sporting and social calendar – the Dubai World Cup.
This March thousands of stylish racegoers were treated to a stunning performance at the 2017 Dubai World Cup when Arrogate – the world’s best racehorse – lived up to expectations and won in superb style. This was then followed up by a concert from Australian pop powerhouse Sia.
The new racing season kicks off at Meydan on November 9, and tickets are now available online for next year’s main event, with plenty of early bird offers. The Dubai World Cup 2018 will be held on Saturday 31 March, and the day will showcase nine top-class races and a total prize purse of $30m.
Tickets for the Apron views area, which hosts the Style Stakes and post-race concert, are on sale for Dhs350 if booked before December 31 2017. This price rises to Dhs450 until March 18, and is Dhs600 in the final fortnight.
