Football fans can now become super fans of Abu Dhabi clubs

New initiative to grow support for UAE sides

Football fans can now become super fans of Abu Dhabi clubs

Football. The beautiful game. Soccer. Whatever you like to call it, the sport has global appeal.

Here in the UAE, many expats continue to support their hometown teams and others from around the world have a real passion for the big teams of Europe.

Closer to home, The Arabian Gulf League is looking to build on the love of football in the UAE by getting fans more involved with the game here.

The UAE Pro League have announced the SuperFan programme to help connect communities across the UAE to the national football league.

Open to expats and locals, the programme will recruit and establish fans to become ambassadors for local teams.

Here in Abu Dhabi there a number of clubs that you can lend your support to, including Al Jazira Club, Al Wahda FC, Al Dhafra FC and Baniyas Club.

Plus, just down the road in the Garden City, there’s Al Ain FC, one of the country’s most successful sides in recent years.

Never been to a game? Many match tickets start from Dhs10 so why not check it out yourself?

We’ll be in the stands with you.
