Nakheel Community Management (NCM) partnered with Emirates Dubai 7s as presenting partner for the second year running to support the biggest sports and entertainment festival in the Middle East. Taking place at The Sevens Stadium, Dubai, Nakheel sponsored the Emirates Dubai 7s Netball tournament which saw 85 top-class netball teams competing on the four courts of the Sevens Stadium across the three days.

The Emirates Dubai 7s is a key event in Dubai’s sporting calendar and regularly attracts crowds of over 100,000 fans to The Sevens Stadium across the UAE National Day weekend. The netball matches were played across various divisions and international teams and fans enjoyed musical performances and fun activities like inflatable slides and arts and crafts in family friendly zones, as well as sporting masterclasses on ‘Family Friday’.

Francis Giani, Chief Community Management Officer at Nakheel, said: “At Nakheel Community Management, we are committed to promoting sports and wellbeing among Dubai residents across all our Nakheel communities. Our partnership with Emirates Dubai 7s for the second year in a row to support the hugely popular netball tournaments at The Sevens Stadium, aligns with our common goal to encourage community participation in sporting activities, such as netball, as well as embracing an active and healthy lifestyle. We aim to become the home of netball in the UAE.”

Simon Jelowitz, Head of Sport Operations at Emirates Dubai 7s, said: “Having Nakheel Community Management as a presenting partner for one of the city’s most exciting sporting events is a proud moment for us. Netball is fast becoming a community sport with a magnetic pull for sporting enthusiasts, as well as families looking for a fun day out. This year’s edition saw 85 netball teams compete, compared to the 65 who took part last year, showcasing how popular the game has become among Dubai communities.”

Nakheel is planning a dedicated netball facility in Jumeirah Village Circle, as part of NCM’s commitment to promote an active and healthy lifestyle to Dubai’s residents and visitors. The netball facility is due to open to the public in 2024.
