Dubai Rugby 7s aiming for a shot at the Guinness Book

posted on 04/11/2003: 1817 views

The make-shift stadium currently under construction to stage the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby 7s in Al Awir could be heading for a place in the Guinness Book of Records. The massive temporary construction at the Dubai Exiles RFC ground will be able to seat almost 20,000 spectators who will be flooding into the city from across the world, prompting organisers to open communications with the publishers of the famous book.

The stadium has doubled in size in just three years, underlining the incredible growth the event has enjoyed since it was introduced to the International Rugby Board's Sevens world series in 1999. Despite the increase in seats, the huge early demand for tickets has signalled that a sell-out crowd is anticipated. The temporary fixture takes three months to assemble and a mere three days to dismantle. It is spread over an area of 62,500 square metres and houses four pitches.

The 7s ticketline (800-4814) has been inundated with calls while the official web site ( has received hundreds of hits on its tickets' link. Tickets have also been selling fast at MMI Outlets, Long's Bar, Boston Bar, The Exiles Club and the Dubai Airline Centre on Sheikh Zayed Road. (The Gulf News)
