Foot­ball fans will have no short­age of games to watch as the AFC Asian Cup is held across the UAE this month. The 28-day tour­na­ment is ex­pected to be the biggest sport­ing event ever hosted in the UAE and will fea­ture Asia’s top 24 foot­balling na­tions, in­clud­ing Ja­pan, Aus­tralia, In­dia, the Philip­pines, Saudi Ara­bia and, of course, the UAE. Run­ning from Jan­uary 5 to Fe­bru­ary 1, you’ll be able to catch the ac­tion at eight newly-re­fur­bished sta­di­ums across four host ci­ties: Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai and Shar­jah. You can watch group stage matches from as lit­tle as Dhs25 per game, while the fi­nal will set you back be­tween Dhs75 and Dhs300 a ticket de­pend­ing on how much you want to splurge. The UAE is the per­fect melt­ing pot of cul­tures and na­tion­al­i­ties to host such a di­verse sport­ing tour­na­ment and we can’t wait to get stuck in sup­port­ing the home team.
