“Sustainability is at the core of the design for Hamdan Sports Complex, and the construction of the 15,000-seating multi-sports indoor complex took into account ground-breaking environmentally friendly technology. It is a huge complex with exceptional facilities for both competitors and spectators, and I am sure the 1,800 participants, as well as the 1,200-plus officials and technical staff, will return from Dubai with great memories of the city and the Complex.
He added: “Dubai Sports Council is always keen to host and organise major world championships in Dubai, and we are pleased that this version of the Karate World Championships will be the biggest-ever in terms of the number of participants.
“This is a confirmation of the world's confidence in UAE's ability to host major sports events involving large groups of people, and the number of participants is also a reflection of the keenness of international sports athletes to visit Dubai, a magnificent city which is home to people from more than 195 countries and also the favourite destination of millions of tourists.”
