FIFA Preferred Producer Act Global provided the mini-pitch for this year’s FIFA U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates, giving countless visitors the opportunity to play a game of football as part of a World Cup.

The pitch wasn’t just a hit with the young visitors to the Fan Zone, however, as even the UAE team dropped by to have a kick-about with the kids.

Act Global’s Chris Clapham said: “As part of our market development in the Gulf region, the provision of the turf for the Fan Zone provided our company with an exciting and rewarding opportunity to demonstrate the quality of our ‘Xtreme Turf’ product.”

The Fan Zone on the East Plaza of the Abu Dhabi Corniche will be open daily between the hours of 16.00 and 23.00 right up until the end of the tournament.
