The Sevens Stadium opened in 2008 as a purpose built rugby venue to host the annual Dubai Sevens, a World Rugby Sevens Series event that had previously been held at the old Dubai Exiles rugby ground. The stadium has a capacity of 44,000, with the Dubai Sevens attracting a crowd of 100,000 over 3 days of competition.
Although primarily used for rugby, the venue also has facilities for netball, basketball, cricket, tennis, athletics and Aussie rules football. Major football friendlies at the stadium include AC Milan v Hamburg in 2009 and Real Madrid v AC Milan in 2014.
