Mubadala and Zayed Sports City Turn the Spotlight on Family to Bring 4 Days of Cheer

In its 10th year of title sponsorship of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, Mubadala Investment Company (Mubadala) in partnership with Zayed Sports City will launch the inaugural Zayed Sports City Family Festival just days before the tournament. 

From December 24-27 December 2017, the ultimate family event will provide festival-goers with the opportunity to experience more than 15 hands-on activities, plus food trucks, street performances, character appearances, stage shows, face painting and more that kids of all ages can enjoy with their parents.

In celebration of family and youth, Zayed Sports City is further extending the experience at the festival with immersive interactive workshops and activity zones featuring Mansour cartoon, LEGO, Discovery Adventures and Nutty Scientists to engage and inspire families. Energy will also be high with ZSC Academy’s sessions in tennis and football, an adrenaline area featuring action on and off the ground. Visitors can further explore UAE heritage and try traditional dishes, take part in arts and crafts projects and join fitness sessions.

“Our support of this exciting festival is part of Mubadala’s commitment to create vibrant and healthy communities. We have been a long-time supporter of youth and sports programs as a key component of our community outreach efforts in the UAE. This year, as we mark the 10th anniversary of Mubadala World Tennis Championship, we are delighted to partner with Zayed Sports City through an initiative that encourages families, friends and the community to come together and share memories by engaging in a vast range of activities and experiences that heighten the excitement of the Championship.” commented Homaid Al Shimmari, Deputy Group Chief Executive Officer and Chief Human Capital & Corporate Officer at Mubadala.

To fuel the excitement, Zayed Sports City Family Festival has invited some of the country’s favourite food trucks including Gossip Café, Son of a Chic, Moylos Burger and Scoop by No. FiftySeven. Entertainers will roam the show to paint faces and perform tricks, while the stage will be highlighted by the show ‘Aladdin‘, the MotoDancers, demonstrations, contests and more.

Zayed Sports City Family Festival in partnership with Mubadala will take place from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily between 24 – 27 December and admission is free for everyone. To register in advance and get more details, please visit
