The Top 5 Places to Play Indoor Football in Dubai... One Place Stands Out
When it comes to choosing where to play football, there are a few factors that you might want to consider. And since we’re talking about Dubai, where the summer heat is unbearable, we’ll focus on indoor and air-conditioned venues only. The factors to consider are the following:
Location: Most people are not willing to drive more than 20-30 min to play a game on a regular basis, so it is for you to decide what distance you’re willing to travel to get the right football experience.
Pitch Size: Another factor would depend on the number of players and the type of games you prefer to play: 5-a-side/6-a-side/7-a-side, etc. Not only that, there’s also how spacious the pitch is relative to the number of players i.e: a 40m long by 30m wide is a 5-a-side pitch, and 36m long by 26m wide is also a slightly smaller 5-a-side pitch.
Customer Experience: Here we are talking about the overall experience, which depends on a few things, including turf quality and condition, balls quality and condition, as well as the lighting system efficacy.
New Wow Factor: There is a new factor that players are seriously considering when it comes to choosing where to play. But before we talk about what it is, let’s go over our top 5 favourite indoor football venues in Dubai:
Location: Al Quoz Industrial Area 1 & at Mina Rashid
Pitch size: 5-a-side
Customer Experience: JustPlay makes the top 5 list with its two locations, making it close to you no matter where you are in Dubai. The pitches are relatively small but still decent enough in size. The only downside is that the turf is getting a little outdated.

Location: Umm Suqeim St - Al Barsha
Pitch size: 5-a-side and 7-a-side
Customer Experience: All Star Sport has the best size pitches, the staff’s friendliness is awesome and they care a lot about making their customers happy. They work hard to ensure players get what they want.
