Welcome to Meydan, the most important new business, sporting and lifestyle destination in Dubai.
Nestling four kilometres from the mouth of Dubai Creek, Meydan is founded on the simple guiding
principles of partnership, community and sporting excellence. 'Meydan' is translated from an Arabic word
meaning 'a meeting place' and is an interconnected cityscape of four distinct districts where the worlds of
business, sport and cosmopolitan-living merge and complement one another. Meydan is a purpose-built
development that aims to set new standards of living, build an inspirational business culture, and offer
spectacular quality in entertainment and lifestyle.
Meydan Racecourse: At the heart of Meydan City lies an architectural masterpiece that is the iconic
Meydan Grand Stand and Racecourse. With a capacity of 60,000, this landmark stadium houses the
world's first luxury 5-star trackside hotel, The Meydan Hotel with world-class amenities and an exciting
mix of food and beverage establishments. It also houses the Meydan Museum and Gallery, an IMAX
Theatre, the Dubai Racing Club and Emirates Racing Authority offices. The Falcon Carpark is a
double-storied covered carpark constructed in the shape of a falcon and designed to accommodate all
visitors to Meydan Grandstand and Racecourse. It sets new standards with a structure that can easily
accommodate 8,600 cars.
Meydan Grand Stand is at the centre of Dubai's burgeoning new urban frontier and is home to 72
luxurious purpose-built suites. With facilities such as a 353-foot long LED trackside screen, the Sky
Bubble, an indoor food court, extensive infield space and the Apron, Meydan Grand Stand is an ideal
