Train with a Premier League star at Jumeirah Beach Hotel

Footballer Robbie Keane and others to coach kids in Dubai

Train with a Premier League star at Jumeirah Beach Hotel

Jumeirah Beach Hotel’s upcoming football escape for kids aged five to 15 years old will bring together UEFA-licensed coaches and former Premier League stars, including international footballer, Robbie Keane to Dubai for a five-day course.

A proven goal scorer, Keane has scored more than 250 goals for club and country in a career that began in 1997 at the age of just 17, and has seen him become one of the strongest forwards of his time.

Taking place from Monday February 18 until Friday February 22, kids of all abilities are welcome to join for an unmissable opportunity to train with the champions and receive guidance from some super successful mentors – whether it’s for two or three days, or the full course.

Jumeirah Beach Hotel has reopened last October after a five-month refurbishment and has returned with a new look inspired by sea, sand and nature.

You can grab a post-training bite with the kids at family dining hub Kitchen Connection, which offers nine interactive cooking stations for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There’s also Pearl Lounge, which serves gourmet sandwiches, tartines and a pearl-inspired afternoon tea for mum to enjoy while waiting for the kids to finish.

Playing with their team for a Premier League win isn’t so far-fetched after all, we just got to sign the kids up first.
Dhs1,470 (two days), Dhs2, 205 (three days), Dhs3,150 (five days). Feb 18-22, 10am-noon. Events Arena, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, (04 406 8800).
