As we reach the end of match-week 12 of the Arabian Gulf League, fans have undoubtedly lived through a rollercoaster of emotions as they followed their clubs’ games.
But the past three match-weeks have brought a different type of joy introduced by the UAE Pro League – and with little to do with players’ performances on the pitch or manager’s tactics.
Five lucky loyal AGL fans were rewarded for their loyalty with Audi A3 car distributed by the UAEPL for fans who entered the raffle draw after buying a tickets online and attending a minimum of three home games for their respective clubs.
Mateus Rudyk from Poland is an Al Wasl faithful. Alongside his son, Rudyk, he was at Zabeel Stadium for the match-week 10 clash against Al Jazira and walked away with the first Audi A3 of the AGL season.
“I started attending Arabian Gulf League because my son is a huge football fan, and after falling in love with the atmosphere, I became a regular here,” explained the Cheetahs’ supporter.
“The ticket purchasing process is easy and organised. I always attend Al Wasl’s home games and today luck was finally on my side!”
Down in the capital, it was Muhammad Iqbal from India who was the next winner. The Bani Yas supporter was delighted after winning the raffle at the Sky Blues’ home match against Al Jazira.
“This is the first time I have won anything since my arrival to the UAE. I can’t describe the feeling. I’m a regular at Bani Yas games and always buy my tickets on Platinumlist.ae,” he said.

At the Clasico between Al Wahda and Al Ain, it was the Clarets’ fan Hamad Al Afeefi who was the happiest home fan leaving Al Nahyan Stadium.
Al Afeefi invited fans who have yet to win prizes to attend Arabian Gulf League matches, adding: “I attend all Al Wahda games and buy my tickets online on the hope that I get picked in the raffle and win prizes. I wasn’t so lucky in previous games, but this time luck was on my side and I won the car!”
Sharjah fan Talal Al Shehhi praised the ticket purchasing process after winning an Audi A3 at the King’s match-week 13 game against Al Wahda.
He said: “It is very easy. All you have to do is pick your seat, enter your credit card details and in less than two minutes, the e-ticket will arrive in your inbox.”
At the Garden City, it was Al Ain fan Rabeea Al Mansoori joining the winners list after being selected by the raffle at Hazza bin Zayed Stadium where Al Ain hosted Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Club at the end of match-week 12.
Stadiums change and so do winners’ names, but the story remains the same. The UAEPL is continuing its tireless efforts to support clubs, drive attendances up, extend clubs’ fan bases and boost club loyalties through this initiative. Yet another car awaits at the Arabian Gulf Cup final on January 17 and the giveaways then continue in the league with 23 more Audi A3s up for grabs throughout the rest of the season.
