It is only a matter of time now before fans throng back once again into stadiums and sports hall as Dubai Sports Council awaits the green signal from the relevant authorities.
The announcement comes following cooperation between Dubai Sports Council and Dubai Police along with government and private clubs and halls in Dubai to ensure the safety of spectators and everyone involved.
According to a press release, Dubai Sports Council stressed that all sports facilities in Dubai were on par with international standards to organise local and international competitions, and receive fans immediately, as per the decision of the Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management of Dubai.
Moving in the direction of welcoming sports back following the Covid-19, Dubai Sports Council organised a forum last month to discuss the road map for the safe return of fans, in cooperation with the Dubai Police and with the participation of clubs and local and international sports institutions.
International federations, who have opened their gates to fans, were also invited to the forum to share their experience and plans. Field visits were also organised to the main football stadiums to ensure their preparations and readiness.
