Fans can meet World Cup heroes and win a trip to the Big Apple

New York City football stars are jetting off to the capital – and fans have an unmissable chance to score a big meeting with their pitch heroes at a top Abu Dhabi hotel.

An international cast of New York City Football Club’s biggest names will be heading to the one of the city’s favourite sports bars, Blu Sky Lounge & Grill, for an hotly-awaited meet and greet session this Wednesday.

Not only will fans get up close and personal to some of New York’s finest – they can also take part in a competition to win an unforgettable trip to New York City to see the team in action, courtesy of Abu Dhabi airline Etihad.

Best of all the event is free, so why not get in on the footballing fun.
