Footy legend to host private evening including an interview, one-on-one meets, auctions and more

Meet Rio Ferdinand at live luxury Dubai event

He’s one of football’s greatest-ever centre backs, who played for Manchester United, Leeds United, West Ham and England during his near-20-year career, and now Rio Ferdinand is heading to Dubai for a one-night live event.

And it’s one where you’ll be able to get to field your questions to the man himself, in a live, unscripted interview on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah at the start of next year.

Taking place at W Dubai – The Palm on Wednesday January 8 2020, the night will be hosted by BT Sport commentator and presenter Darren Fletcher, and depending on what package you go for you’ll be able to get a whole experience to go with it.

If you want to go big and book the platinum package (prices TBC and available on request), you’ll get complimentary drinks all evening to go alongside your three-course meal, a private meet and greet with Ferdinand, a framed 6 x 9 professional photograph with the footy legend, plus a signed, authenticated Ferdinand Manchester United shirt from the 2009 Champions League which, incidentally, the reds won.

There’s also going to be live entertainment, a memorabilia auction and other offers and more taking place over the course of the evening.

Other packages scale down what’s on offer, but regardless of what you go for, football fans are going to have a blast meeting one of the legends of the game.
