One of the capital’s biggest malls is kicking off the FIFA Club World Cup early with a massive three-day bonanza celebrating the beautiful game.

The Mall at World Trade Center Abu Dhabi is continuing the countdown to the massive sporting spectacle, which will see star-studded Real Madrid attempt to retain their global crown in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain this December, with a festival of football fun this August.

From August 17 to 19, football fans will be able to try out a host of activities and games, and they will score tickets to see the prestigious tournament live in person just for taking part.

Games taking over the mall include competitions on football dribbling, passing, heading and throwing, as well as precision, shot-stopping, reflexes, accuracy, E-sports, power and speeds.

Interactive experiences will also give participants a chance to see what it’s like to spend a day in a superstar footballer’s boots.

Activities will include goal commentary experiences, locker room entrances and, of course, those all-important goal celebrations. Will you go in for a simple handshake or throw in a somersault or two?

Players can live out their footballing dreams by buying tickets at the mall for Dhs20. That will give participants a chance to try out each pursuit once. Upon completing the activities, they will be rewarded with a ticket voucher redeemable for a match ticket of equal value.

The highest-ranking players of each activity will be invited to FIFA Fan Village at Zayed Sports City Stadium to compete and to be crowned the FIFA Club World Cup Hero, a grand title which comes with some top prizes.

The FIFA Club World Cup will invade the capital from December 6 to 16, with top sides from every continent fighting for the right to be known as the best club team on the planet.

The FIFA Club World Cup activities will run from 5pm until 9pm on Thursday, August 17 and from noon to 9pm on Friday and Saturday (August 18 and 19).

Talk about having the world at your feet.

Dhs20. Aug 17-19. The Mall at World Trade Center Abu Dhabi, Al Markaziyah (02 508 2400).
