Sports in Dubai UAE

This is one of the 14 short video clips prepared by Emirates Airline to give people a taste of Dubai before they fly.

With His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum at the helm, it is no surprise that Dubai is a sports lover’s paradise.

Take a look at a sample of the sports:

* Motorcar racing at the Dubai Autodrome

* Golf courses aplenty for the up and coming golfers and the hacks

* Horse racing, including the richest horse race in the world

* Camel racing with its history and robotic jockeys

Then there is cricket, rugby, sailing, the America’s Cup in the UAE…
