EX Sports has partnered with world-leading master developer Nakheel, to host a series of celebrity World Cup podcasts from the rooftop of the stunning View At the Palm.
Each episode is hosted by Urbanball’s CEO and superstar freestyle footballer, Sean Garnier. As a Red Bull top 5 global athlete and social media icon, Sean enjoys worldwide fame and has amassed a following of over 20 million. Joining Sean as a co-host is Dubai based entrepreneur and TK MMA owner, Tam Khan. Guests will include celebrities, athletes and influencers who all share a similar social impact journey with Sean and EX Sports. The core topics will be the World Cup, street football, social impact and the upcoming Urbanball mobile game.
On Sunday 27th November, to mark the end of the Dubai Fitness Challenge, EX Sports partnered with TK MMA to hold a special bootcamp that saw some of Dubai’s biggest fitness influencers take part in the special event and unique experience.
Boasting spectacular views of the Palm, the Persian Gulf and mainland Dubai, the rooftop setting also features the spectacular Urbanball pitch, hand painted by UAE based Black Ink Crew. The story behind the pitch stems from Brazil when EX Sports traveled there earlier this year to hold country qualifiers in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. EX Sports and Sean were inspired by the passion of the street football communities, so much so that they will donate the pitch to a favela, once all activities are complete.
