Under Construction: Dubai’s Rugby World Cup Headquarters in JLT


The 2011 Rugby World Cup is just around the corner and we’ve started building Dubai’s Rugby World Cup Headquarters in the heart of JLT, right next to the Almas Tower.

What currently looks like a lot of metal poles and white material will soon turn into a very comfortable, fully-air-conditioned, Rugby marquee ready to welcome Dubai’s Rugby fans.

The match schedule has been out for a while and you can check it here. We’ll be showing most matches live, plus we’ll record them and show them again later in the day for those of you who didn’t get a chance to see them earlier on.

In the mornings, you can enjoy the famous McGettigan’s Rugby World Cup breakfasts, and on Fridays we’re offering a special Rugby World Cup brunch.

More details coming soon! Stay tuned! Rugby World Cup 2011 in Dubai – There’s only 1 place to catch all the Rugby action!
