Interactive Liverpool FC fan zone coming to Dubai

Liverpool FC fans in Dubai will be able to attend LFC World, presented by Standard Chartered, which visits the city next month - the final location for the 2017-18 season.

The interactive fan experience will focus around a giant beachside viewing party for the Reds’ last game of the campaign, against Brighton and Hove Albion on May 13.

The free-to-attend event will take place at Barasti on Jumeirah Beach, where fans can also enjoy LFC World’s interactive experiences, such as taking a picture with one of the most iconic trophies in football - the Champions League.

There’s also be the chance to enjoy a recreation of the Anfield dressing room where fans can sit under the shirts of their favourite players, a replica of the famous Shankly Gates, as well as photo stations to take the perfect LFC selfie throughout.

Liverpool legends Steven Gerrard, Gary McAllister and Steve McManaman will also be visiting LFC World and fans will have the opportunity to see them in a live Q&A at the viewing party.

Club ambassador McAllister said: “We can’t wait to meet all of the passionate Reds supporters in Dubai. This will be a viewing party like no other – interactive things for fans to get involved with and an incredible atmosphere. We want them to hear us singing in Anfield!”

Julian Wynter, CEO of Standard Chartered Bank UAE, added: “We are proud to be partners of Liverpool FC, one of the leading English football clubs with 770 million followers around the globe. Football is a very popular sport in the UAE and the region, and our partnership with Liverpool FC can only help raise our profile with our clients.

“The LFC legends’ visit coincides with our 60th anniversary in the UAE and we have a series of activities lined up for our staff, clients and LFC fans to mark this special occasion. Such an interactive fan experience from one of the world’s best-known football clubs is a testament to our commitment to our clients in this country.”
