NBA Talks about UAE
The NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum praised the facilities in the capital and explained his decision to sign a deal to bring NBA pre-season games in UAE.
“The appeal for the NBA was we have a big fanbase here, around three million fans in the UAE. Secondly, when we look to bring our games outside of the United States, we look for world-class facilities and Abu Dhabi has those. The Etihad Arena is as nice as any NBA arena I have been to around the world,” Tatum said.
“Thirdly, we look for partners that have the experience of hosting world-class events and there is no doubt that Abu Dhabi has done that, whether it’s Formula One, professional golf and tennis championships, Special Olympics – this place knows how to host and put on world-class events, which NBA games are. So those are some of the reasons why we chose Abu Dhabi as the destination.”
Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi, stressed the importance of the NBA coming to the UAE and outlined the plans:Subscribe toSUBSCRIBE
“We’re very proud to have this multi-year partnership and that goes beyond that game,” he said “We have shared values with the NBA; values of tolerance, diversity, teamwork – all these things reflect our communities in Abu Dhabi and the UAE.
“Positioning Abu Dhabi as a hub for world-class sports events in the region is something that we were looking for and having the NBA as part of our portfolio will definitely add value.
“But it’s more about community development, talent development, the whole ecosystem, it’s not just about the games. We have common values and we have many things to work on for the future. This is just the beginning.”
“Once we have all these coaches come to Abu Dhabi to work with different teams here and to bring the culture of the NBA to the region, I believe we will start to see new talents and new fans,” Al Shaiba said. “Kids have that dream of reaching the NBA but we need to create that environment for them. It is a process, and it will take time, but we are building the foundations for the next generation.”
