Home to a number of local community clubs and venue for major international tournaments, the purpose-built facility is a hub for sports and events in Dubai.
It stages the annual Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens, one of the most popular events on the UAE's social and sporting calendar, and hosted the 2009 IRB Sevens Rugby World Cup.
Major corporate events, concerts featuring leading international artists and a wide variety of other sporting events are also regularly held at the venue which opened in 2008.
The main pitch at 7he Sevens features a permanent grandstand with 4,000 seats, but the capacity can be increased to 50,000 by temporary stands and corporate hospitality marquees.
The stadium is supported by the Players' Club, a clubhouse featuring full food and beverage facilities, 12 changing rooms for players and officials, tournament management areas and media and broadcast facilities.
The second pitch, in a bowl and enclosed on three sides by grass embankments, can accommodate up to 15,000 spectators, while four further sports pitches are located in the vicinity of the clubhouse. 7he Sevens is home to Dubai's senior, junior and women's rugby teams and is also the base of Arsenal Soccer Schools Dubai – a joint venture between Emirates and the English Premier League Club.
Comprehensive cricket facilities, added to the complex in 2010, include six pitches (two grass and four all-weather), practice nets and a pavilion with four dressing rooms and catering facilities.
The facility – which hosts the annual Emirates Airline Twenty20 - has the capacity to host hundreds of players every week and is also the home of the Dubai Cricket Council.
7he Sevens is a community facility and serves sport enthusiasts across a variety of other pastimes, including hurling, basketball, netball, tennis, as well as American, Gaelic and Australian Rules football.
