Via Timeout Dubai


UAE is planning the construction of a state-of-the-art 20,000 seat indoor arena next to City Walk in the heart of Dubai. Construction is expected to be completed within two years.


Meraas, the development company in charge of the operation, has already begun work on a 500,000 sq ft plot directly opposite Downtown Dubai.

The new venue will be home to large music concerts and other entertainment events and will be the largest of its kind in the UAE.


Abdulla Al Habbai, Group Chairman of Meraas, said, “Dubai Arena will host famous and world-renowned athletes, artists and performers and attract tourists to Dubai all year round. It will also host large global events and performances that have not visited the region as yet, due to the lack of a suitable platform for holding similar events.”
