Arsenal Soccer Schools Dubai
Arsenal Soccer Schools Dubai - a joint venture between Emirates and Arsenal Football Club - provides children the opportunity to learn from UEFA licensed coaches.
The aim of the school is to give kids the chance to learn how to ‘Play the Arsenal Way’, the flowing, visionary style of football which is the hallmark of first-team manager Arsene Wenger.
He is world-renowned for his ability to nurture young talent and the coaching at Arsenal Soccer Schools Dubai is based on the same principles that he teaches the first team.
The training programme is designed to help young players develop their technical skills and passion for the game, ensuring they have a platform to reach their potential.
Arsenal Soccer Schools Dubai – which is open to boys and girls of all ages and ability - is permanently based at 7he Sevens, Emirates’ dedicated sporting venue.
The school opened in October 2009, exactly five years after Emirates and Arsenal signed what was the biggest club sponsorship deal in English football history.
Gael Clichy was the star guest at the launch ceremony and a succession of team-mates - including Cesc Fabregas, Kieran Gibbs, Robin van Persie, Mikael Silvestre and Manuel Almunia - have also shown their support by visiting the school.
