After a troublesome 12 month period without a place to call home, the Dubai Sharks will finally be able to sink their teeth into new dwellings this coming rugby season. Their new clubhouse will be known as the Sports Zone within the Boathouse at Meydan, UAE. Their new club facilities will boast training pitches, a fitness zone and a purpose built all important clubhouse offering value food and drink for players and fans as well as the general public.

The new Sports Zone Clubhouse will be the social centre for the new look Sharks team and aims to be at the heart of sport within Dubai.

Officially opening their doors to the public and to new social and playing members this coming Friday 20th July, the Sharks expect to see a full house to welcome them home at last.

It was just over 12 months ago that the Sharks found themselves without a location due to the creation of the Dubai Eagles rugby club at Sports City Rugby Park, where the Sharks had been co sharing with the Arabian Knights for the previous 4 seasons. For the past season they have (against all odds) survived a pretty troublesome period of rugby.

Club Chairman, Mike Quinn said,

“The last season has been extremely difficult for all members of Dubai Sharks, but we now look forward to starting the 2018/2019 season in our new home at The Sports Zone. We believe that our partnership with the Sports Zone and GSMEG will be extremely beneficial to all involved. To be able to confirm that our new home is in this amazing world class facility, which includes our own clubhouse, is an absolutely amazing way to start the new season for all our members, old and new”.

Now the Sharks hope to put the past season’s woes behind them as they embark on pastures new over at the purpose built Sports Zone facility, which will play host to a number of sports on and off the field and aims to have their newly installed grass pitch ready for the start of the 2018/19 rugby season.

With a rich rugby history in Middle East, The Dubai Sharks was founded in 2006 as a senior men’s team playing in the UAE Rugby Conference. A rugby club with a diverse and growing membership renowned for their sportsmanship and hospitality, they are still looking to promote their mantra as a “Serious Rugby, Seriously Social”.
