Dubai Sports Council (DSC) introduced an interactive portal that serves as a guide to all sports events taking place in the Emirate.
The platform was launched with the aim of developing the sports sector under the umbrella of the Dubai 10x initiative. The Dubai Sports Gate initiative is part of the 26 initiatives submitted by 24 government agencies in Dubai and approved by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF).
Saeed Hareb, secretary general of Dubai Sports Council, commented on Dubai’s active sports stating that it has been attracting many international events. “The Gate is a platform where all sports events are listed with a full schedule. Users can book any sports facility; in addition, international users can also book transportation and accommodation through the Gate.”
According to Hareb, the project will encourage people to be more active and to adopt a healthier lifestyle as the Gate will allow users to register and participate in any event. “It also enables them to watch championships that take place in Dubai and provide them with updated information about service providers and specialized stores that sell sports equipment,” he added.
The implementation of the project is estimated to take between 18-24 months.
