Completion of the world’s largest sports mall in Dubai to complete in early 2020

UAE - December 24, 2018

Dubai-based firm Viva City has announced that the construction of Sport Society, the world’s largest sports mall, in Mirdif Dubai is on track for completion in early 2020.

Viva City’s head of design, Edgar Bove said that, the project’s construction work is progressing according to schedule and within the allocated budget, thanks to the efficient operations of Khansaheb Civil Engineering, the company commissioned to carry out the construction work.

The sports mall will have three floors with a total area that is equal to 12 football pitches. The ground floor will have a large space for organizing various sporting events.

The other two levels will feature retail outlets by the most prominent international sports brands as well as dedicated spaces for various sports activities in addition to a large chain of restaurants and cafes.

The mall will also have a screen that will be one of the largest LED display panels on which visitors can watch international sports events.

Bove said the pouring of almost 60,000 cubic meters of structural concrete has so far taken place with the erection of nine structural steel trusses.

Work has also started on installing huge LED screens throughout the development which will  broadcast local and international entertainment and sports news and the fitting of a full NHL regulation size ice rink cooled to -5 degrees centigrade.

Bove added that the process of building the world’s largest sports mall faces many challenges, especially as the project is designed to be an architectural icon that will deliver a unique experience combining shopping, entertainment and sports activities.
