(UAE Pro League).

The Arabian Gulf League’s spectacular ‘Match of the Week’ initiative is ramping up the excitement in one of Asia’s premier competitions.

Featuring as the highlight of the round, ‘The Match of the Week’ gives the fans the opportunity to experience a different side of UAE culture, through the lens of top-class local football.

The key clashes of the week combine a fun and action packed day-out for you, your family and friends. In addition to the excitement on pitch, the UAE Pro League Arena FanZone offers fun and competitive challenges, while you can indulge in delicious snacks from one of the premium food truck partners located at the stadium.

Upcoming ‘Match of the Week’ games for the first half of the campaign include new leaders Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Club travelling to the spectacular Hazza bin Zayed Stadium and playing the UAE’s most-decorated club, Al Ain, on January 2.

Save the date for the Arabian Gulf Cup final on January 17, where a new trophy will be unveiled in a glamorous ceremony. There will be action-packed fun for the entire family and friends, with a fireworks display, engaging entertainment, presence of the UAEPL Arena FanZone and a food festival.

In addition, all AG Cup final attendees will automatically be entered into the raffle draw to win a brand-new Audi A3 car.

The first half of the season then finishes with an electrifying title showdown between Shabab Al Ahli and holders Sharjah at Rashid Stadium on January 24.

Throughout the season, the organisers, UAE Pro League, are giving back to the fans. There will be a raffle at the end of the first half of each game, with smartphones, tablets and smart watches being gifted to the winners after the final whistle.

Meanwhile, select matches will witness a lucky supporter get their hands on one of the 30 brand-new Audi A3 cars that will have been raffled out before the end of this season. Since the start of the season, four lucky winners have already claimed their Audi A3 cars.

In order to be eligible for future raffles, fans must register and purchase tickets through the official ticketing platform at PlatinumList.net, plus attend a minimum of three home games of your favourite club.

But the fun does not stop there in 2019/20. Touring to 60 locations over a span of 150+ days until the end of the Arabian Gulf League season, the UAE Pro League Mobile Roadshow will be visiting multiple destinations across the UAE including malls, schools/universities, large events, public locations, corporates and residential communities.

The activations consist of a series of skill-based games which are individually measurable, testing everyone’s football abilities. Scores will be captured to rank performances against friends, family, colleagues and communities.

The UAEPL Mobile Roadshow consists of two different activations which will tour the Emirates simultaneously: The UAEPL Arena and the UAEPL Experience.

Participants will get the opportunity to learn about the Arabian Gulf League through interactive experiences and test their skills at various football challenges from power shooting to dribbling and passing. In addition to many other surprises, fans will be able to get an exclusive photo opportunity with the official league trophy.

The UAEPL Arena and UAEPL Experience will be activating at the following locations during January – Resolution by Day @ du Arena, Abu Dhabi (January 1); Reem Central Park, Abu Dhabi (January 9-11); GEMS Winchester School, Fujairah (January 14-15); Aldar HQ, Abu Dhabi (January 14-16); Al Muneera, Abu Dhabi (January 20-21); Bawadi Mall, Al Ain (January 23-25).
