The latest amenity at the Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi is a 20,000 sqm FIFA-standard football pitch


With the background of the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, guests at the Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal will have a unique amenity to enjoy. A brand new 20,000 sqm FIFA standard football and rugby pitch! The football ground is available for training sessions and matches. It is covered with complete professional floodlighting, a separate 7-a-pitch, and a goalkeeper practice area.


Sports camps, corporate incentive activities and other sporting events, as well as kids camps, team building activities and so on, can be booked for just AED500 ($136) per hour. If creative enough, and perhaps possibly too, conduct weddings even!


Not just football players, apparently even golf players could enjoy the arena by using mats to play the game.


The region is particularly fond of football when they aren’t spending time at the races. It is also a timely introduction before Dubai hosts the EXPO 2021 this year, in October, and welcomes hundreds (if COVID complies) of people from around the world – footballers too, let’s hope.

The hotel has also added as part of its new recreational facility, an exclusive Club House with a private gym and recovery room – both apt for professional sports folk.
