Emirates Airline and Arsenal Football Club have
joined forces to open an Arsenal Soccer School in Dubai, where
children of all nationalities and backgrounds will have the
opportunity to learn how to ‘Play the Arsenal Way’.
Arsenal Soccer School will be permanently based at 7he Sevens,
Emirates’ own sporting venue, and will offer training
opportunities with Arsenal’s UEFA Licensed Soccer Schools Coaches.
The school, which is the first joint-venture of its kind for
Arsenal, is open to boys and girls, with classes available in both
Arabic and English.
No matter which team students support,
or whether they live in Dubai or are visiting, the aim is to get
active and have fun while learning to play football.
His Highness Sheikh Ahmed
bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates
Airline & Group, said, “It is our goal that the Arsenal Soccer School in Dubai will
host an academy, which will become a centre of excellence for the
Middle East where the very best players come to hone their skills
in preparation for a career in the game.”
In addition to the children based in the UAE, Emirates
will be opening up the opportunity to youngsters from around the
world. With non-stop flights to Dubai with Emirates from six
continents, learning from world-class Arsenal coaches at a
magnificent training facility could not be easier.
than 1000 children - aged between five and 18 - will be trained
each year at 7he Sevens, with the first 10-week term kicking off
on 5th October. Each 10-week term will cost AED 1,500 for one
session per week, with fees of AED 2,500 for two sessions a week.
Each session will be between 60 to 75 minutes in duration.
