Dubai Sports City
WELCOME TO SPORTS CENTRAL
Dubai Sports City (DSC) is one of Dubai’s – and the world’s – most unique integrated residential, retail and sporting communities. Home to world-class sporting stadiums, training academies and leisure facilities, DSC houses three distinct residential districts: Victory Heights, Gallery Villas and Canal Residence. In 2018, the precinct celebrated its 10th anniversary.
With the ICC Academy Dubai, a 25,000-seat cricket stadium and the amazing Els Club golf course all within walking distance of the precinct’s main residential areas, DSC truly lives up to its name as the city’s premier sporting and leisure community. As the official venue for the 2018 Asia Cricket Cup, which involved some of the world’s best teams including India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, DSC’s cricket stadium hosted eight international one-day matches including the tournament final. The stadium has also become the unofficial home ground of Pakistan cricket, regularly hosting the team’s international matches.
DSC’S fantastic facilities, central location close to major arterial roads, and quality accommodation options has helped establish it as one of Dubai’s most popular precincts among single professionals and families. This is reflected in its consistently high average occupancy rates and rental returns. In terms of future developments, DSC is home to more than 160 building plots, the majority of which are zoned for residential development, according to data published by real estate analyst lookup.ae.
