Abu Dhabi’s modern city and its state-of-the-art architectural personality is reflected in the venues and facilities that will host the Special Olympics World Games events and competitions. The MENA Games utilized eight venues throughout Abu Dhabi, but the projection for World Games in 2019 will double the number of venues due to the magnitude of the event. These venues have hosted numerous international sports competitions and events in recent years, offering an unbeatable combination of excellent facilities and amenities for the athletes, as well as the highest quality spectator experience. A comprehensive list of all hosting venues will be announced soon.
