It’s game-on at Dragon Mart 2 as the popular ‘everything mall’ has teamed up with Ahdaaf and is now sporting soccer pitches and cricket nets on its roof.
They’re part of a new 73,000 square feet floodlit sports complex on Dragon Mart 2’s roof. Because – Dragon Mart. The retail emporium is already known for its intensely eclectic inventory, with stores offering everything from hot tubs to helicopters. Well, model ones at least.
They come via a collaboration with Ahdaaf (meaning ‘goals’) Sports Club and offer the surrounding communities an opportunity to score some lofty al fresco fitness goals.
There are two seven-a-side astroturf football pitches and two cricket batting nets available to book now. You can rent the individual footie pitches for AED 315 (including VAT) per hour, and the cricket nets from AED 105 (incl VAT) per hour. They’re open from 4pm to midnight over the summer months and from 7am to midnight in winter.
Ahdaaf was described as an “exciting addition to this world-famous shopping and entertainment hub” by Omar Khoory, managing director of Nakheel Malls. It’s one that joins Dragon Mart’s multi-screen Novo Cinemas complex, a Fabyland family entertainment zone and a comprehensive list of dining options.
