Question Watching NFL games in Dubai

Hi Folks,

I'm moving to Dubai in the very near future and want to know if there are any groups of NFL supporters who meet up every Sunday to watch a NFL game or two? Please let me know where this is happening.

If not - can people let me know if they would be interested in meeting up to watch the game we all love and I will try arrange a suitable venue with refreshments.

As a NFL fan I really enjoy the games more surrounded by similar fans no matter who you support (even Raiders Fans).

As a long suffering Dolphins fan I havent had much to cheer over the last decade but hopefully things are changing this season.

Do some searches on NFL as there are many threads on the topic. The NFL is not popular here and combined with the timings of live games not something that is commonly shown in bars.

Personally, I buy NFL Game Pass and watch at home. Obviously, that does not meet your objective of enjoying the game with others. You could try and put a group together. I love it that way, because when watch the games on demand they remove commercials and half time show.

Hey, I stumbled on a bar that plays Sunday's games on a big projection screen. It's called the Cube at Meydan Golfcourse. it's attached to the Meydan horse racetrack and serves good grub and drinks. The toughest part about the games though, is the the start time. early game in the US doesn't start until 9pm here, so you would have to be a little bit of a night owl if you wanted to catch two games

Hope this helps, and welcome to Dubai

Give these guys a shout ...

The domain name EAFL.COM.

Apart from having local teams and a league etc, they do organize meetup's and get together to watch games sometimes.

Talk about a suffering fan, while not a 'long suffering fan' (they've been great recently), the Falcons are done for this year though , now all that's left for me is to root against the Aint's and for Peyton Manning ...

With the last 6-year performance blip well and truly consigned to the dustbin, the Giants are firmly back on track to be a 4-12 laughing stock. Nicely done guys, you suck.

I was training with the EAFL guys last year, but between an injury, work load and general rubbishness, I dropped out. Good bunch of people, and the staff have some real pedigree.

4-12 ??!!?? That's a stretch there buddy. Eli can't help but throw interceptions this year, I'd be happy if the Falcons get to that record...

Lads,

Thanks for all the updates.

Saraswot is that the correct website for those lads? I definitely want to checking in with them although my playing days are over.

When you remember the glory days of Dan Marino (A real QB) its time to hang the cleats up.

Hey the EAFL website is at: www.eafl.ae

I play for one of the teams, and as someone said, well organised, fun and they do organise activities from time to time (seem to recall going to the Qube (mentioned above) a few times)

I have Gamepass, would highly recommend!!

Whoops, sorry about that .. Tackledummy already put up the right one ..

About Peyton Vs Marino, I do agree Marino was great, one of the greatest, but he didn't really move franchises in his career, get hurt bad enough to sit out a whole season and then come back into a new system, organization, coaching staff etc.. and straight dominate.

Also no one is better at dissecting the defense making the calls on the line and running the no-huddle / 2 minute offense. Like Elway said recently, Peyton is guy that started the no-huddle...
