Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Crown Prince of Fujairah, has laid the foundation stone of an AED100 million sports stadium in Dibba under an agreement with FujSeng Constructions.

The new stadium is the latest bid to boost the emirate's economy by ensuring an investment-conducive environment in line with the directives of H.H. Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah.

Sheikh Mohammed said that the launch of the stadium is part of the efforts being tirelessly made to develop the infrastructure of the emirate’s sporting establishments, directing all local and federal government departments to chip in the stadium’s construction.

Sheikh Mohammed and the foundation stone-laying ceremony's attendees were briefed on the layout, interior design and specs of the sporting facility by the officials of the Consulting Engineers Co.

Ahmed Saeed Al Dhanhani, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Dibba Al Fujairah Club, thanked Sheikh Hamad and Sheikh Mohammed for supporting the emirate’s sporting facilities and their embrace of the emirate's youngsters, noting that the stadium will serve millennials in Dibba Al Fujairah and adjacent areas, as well as host many sporting championships.

The ceremony was attended by several officials and crowds from Dibba Al Fujairah City.
