In November, the first hotel in Dubai with a football theme will open, allowing football supporters to stay there throughout the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and take shuttles to and from Doha during the day. NH Dubai, located on Palm Jumeirah’s western side, will become a popular destination for fans traveling to Qatar to see the world’s largest football event ever held there.
International football supporters wanting to stay in the UAE have increased their demand for hotel accommodation in recent weeks as the FIFA World Cup approaches its November 21 start date. The Expat Sports travel agency’s “Football Supporters Dubai Experience” will provide a package that includes transportation to and from the airport, lodging at the brand-new NH Dubai The Palm, and flights from Dubai to Qatar.
This is a brand-new contribution to Dubai’s hospitality scene, said Sue Holt, executive director of Expat Sport, the only sales representative for authorized matchday hospitality. “To provide our guests with a special and immersive experience, we are working with official FIFA World Cup partners.”
“There will be foreign visitors coming to this area for the first time, so being in a relaxed atmosphere with other like-minded people in a breathtaking location on The Palm should make this a delightful and unforgettable vacation.” As a professional sports tour company, we fully know football fans’ often-specific travel requirements compared to other tourists.
The NH Dubai The Palm, scheduled to launch in early November with 533 rooms, will become a football mania hub over the month-long competition. Hotel customers will access sporting activities and contests throughout the event, and the sports bar will be converted into a fan zone. The hotel will provide greeting packages, passes, and concessions to other authorized fan zones where fans may watch the match for those traveling to Doha for a single day and staying there.
Bus services will be provided for spectators to watch other matches at official fan zones throughout the city, such as Dubai Harbor, the Coca-Cola Arena, and Football Park at DIFC.
For a group match, hospitality plans with parking, meals, and beverages start at $950 (Dh3,500). The costliest hospitality plan is $4,950 (Dh18,000) per person for a group stage game for a spot in the Pearl Lounge. A six-course dinner, music, beverages, and a customized travel agency service are all included. For $22,450 (Dh82,450), a stadium luxury suite may be rented for a fancy dining experience.
