Dubai - July 14, 2021:   His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Sports Council, has stressed that achieving success in sports and winning titles depends not just on quality of players, coaches or budgets, but also on proper planning and good preparation through rigorous training camps and friendly matches, and His Highness has urged clubs to use the coming period judiciously as they prepare for next season to lay the foundations of their success.

His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum also directed the Board of Directors of Dubai Sports Council to develop an executive plan for the development of the sports sector in Dubai for the next 10 years, which is commensurate with the pace of development in other sectors of Dubai as well as in sync with the plans of Government of Dubai to increase the practise of sports and physical activity in every segment of the community, and to increase the contribution of the sports sector to the national GDP through jobs, investments and sports tourism.

The Plan will also focus on further strengthening Dubai's reputation as one of the world's leading destinations for hosting major international events, as well as the home of world's biggest sports stars, and also the headquarters of international and regional sports federations, and their top decision-makers.
The Plan also seeks to promote Dubai's sports sector as an attractive market for investors and entrepreneurs, a hub for innovation and innovators, and an incubator for ideas and technology that will define the future of sports and eSports, as well as a pioneer in the use of Artificial Intelligence in sports.
