Here’s What Dubai Sports City Looks Like

Opened in 2008, the sprightly sports-themed community has come into its own over the recent years. Aside from being the hotspot for the world’s largest cricketing event, Dubai Sports City has also hosted some of the world’s biggest pop acts of today, which include Drake,among others.

The neighbourhood has also been frequented by those who want to take a break from the fast-paced city life. These include both expats and locals alike, from teachers to young families.

Many of the area’s residents find the place relaxed and with a strong communal, grounded charm to it. The regular community events keep the residents engaged and happy, as well.

Other than a strong sense of community engagement, residents are also presented with the opportunity to remain active with its many pedestrian walkways.

For these reasons, a lot of its expat residents have found a home away from home in Dubai Sports City. Not only are the properties cheaper and more liveable, but the traffic in the area is much more manageable, and so are the noise levels, particularly on weekends, they commented.
