Cricket Matches To Boost Dubai Tourism

Executive Vice Chairman of Emirates Groups, Maurice Flanagan said here has been a slight increase in the number of bookings prior to the Australian-Pakistan Series, and he expects more bookings as the cricket matches take place at the new Dubai Sports City venue.  

International cricket matches have been hosted in the UAE for years including the 200 One Day Matches in Sharjah and 17 international matches in Abu Dhabi in 2004.  Dubai is headquarters for the ICC and held two ODI’s at the Dubai Sports City a few days ago, after it was inaugurated for the Australian-Paksitan series. 

Mr. Flanagan said the global following of billion of fans and the service Emirates provides from more than 100 destinations to Dubai ensures “cricket fans will be looking to come here to watch world class action.”
