26th Dubai World Cup at Meydan: The deets

The 2021 Dubai World Cup at Meydan is going to be fabulous, yes, but you’re going to need a little bit more details than that if you want to be a part of it. As per usual, this year’s cup is going to be held at Meydan Racecourse, in Dubai. The event is scheduled for March 27th and is set to start at 3:30 pm local time. Keep in mind though that tickets are already available and are selling fast. That, though, is no surprise given how popular the event is.

Get to know the venue

Meydan Racecourse is an 11-year-old racecourse which means it’s very modern. The Meydan grandstand is over a mile long and can fit in over 60,000 spectators. The racecourse offers a 5-star hotel, various restaurants, suites, lounges, and even a golf course. But what’s most surprising is that there’s also a horse racing museum! Not only that, but the racecourse was built in the well-known Dubai fashion – luxurious and extravagant. As for the tracks, there are two. The left-handed turf race track which is 1.5 miles long and a left-handed dirt course which is 1.09 miles long are more than enough to satisfy the viewers. Both tracks are in prime condition and ready for racing.

You’ll be happy to know that the tickets are currently available for sale. Keep in mind, though, that there are various tiers of tickets and that every tier is set in a different location. Different areas have different entrances and are mostly separate from one another. It’s also important to mention that each area has its very own flavor and its benefits. You can Dubai World Cup 2021 tickets for:

There’s also an event on the 25th of March called Breakfast With The Stars where you can enjoy a breakfast buffet starting at 5:30 am until 9:30 am.

Keep in mind that for this event dress code is casual.

If you get inspired by the 26th Dubai World Cup at Meydan

Professional racing is extremely physically demanding. And on top of that, it requires a certain build. Unfortunately, not everyone fulfills those criteria. Luckily, most people who wish to try their hand at horseback riding can find a suitable option. However, if you’re hoping to start with horseback riding training, it’s perhaps best to find a quality fitness instructor Dubai has to offer beforehand. Keep in mind that riding can be very demanding physically on almost all levels. So if you’re set on riding it’s best to get in share in advance.

Getting in shape for riding is not as hard as it may seem

Getting in shape might seem like months or even years of dieting and working out. However, that doesn’t have to be the case for you. If you’re hoping to get in shape quickly so you can start your training, know that there are personal trainer courses Dubai gym goers wholeheartedly recommend. But even if you don’t feel like hiring a personal trainer, you can get in shape on your own. As long as you put your mind to it you’ll be in shape in no time!

A great hobby for kids to enjoy

Horseback riding has many benefits for children. If you wish to help your kids develop strong bones and muscles, enroll your kids in horseback riding classes. They’ll work on their fitness, strength, and overall health. On top of that, they’ll be spending plenty of time in the fresh air. They’ll also be able to learn responsibility and how to treat animals properly.

Covid-19 and the 26th Dubai World Cup at Meydan

Even though Coronavirus is plaguing the world right now, the cup is luckily not canceled. However, there are some modifications that may take place. It’s safe to assume that these changes will be implemented due to their presence in all sporting events throughout 2020 and 2021 so far. First of all, it seems like masks will be mandatory throughout the whole event, including the event on the 25th. However, even if not mandatory, be responsible for your own health and the health of other people, and keep the mask on at all times.

It’s also important to note that the capacity may be reduced to comply with Coronavirus rules and regulations. That means that probably not as many viewers will be able to get the tickets for this year’s cup. However, safety should be the number one priority even during events such as the 2021 Dubai World Cup.

Whether you’re only an inexperienced spectator discovering horse racing for the first time, or a seasoned fan, you’ll surely enjoy the show.
