The biggest football tournament ever to be staged in the UAE kicks off this month.
From January 5 the AFC Asian Cup 2019 is taking place in eight stadiums around the country.
For the first time ever there will be 24 international teams taking part and hoping to lift the trophy on February 1.
To help fans get in the football spirit, tournament organisers have set up dedicated AFC City Fan Zones in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
At each Fan Zone there will be public screenings of the matches on giant screens, football-themed games for all the family, live performances from entertainers from ten of the countries involved in the event, and loads more.
The Abu Dhabi fan zone is at A’l Bahar on the Corniche, opposite Nation Towers. It’s open from 1pm until midnight every day from January 4 to February 1.
In Al Ain, the fan zone will be open at Al Towayya Park for the same days and times.
For those who want to watch the games live, tickets start at just Dhs25.
