Real Madrid World – the first-ever football theme park – will open in Dubai.

The amusement park will have “adrenaline-pumping themed attractions, immersive experiences and fan engagement opportunities, celebrating football and basketball the Real Madrid way,” Dubai Parks and Resorts and Real Madrid said in a joint statement.

Real Madrid World will host new experiences, including family-friendly attractions, themed food and dining and retail stores featuring official Real Madrid merchandise.

Specific details of the park will be announced soon, the statement said.

Spanish club Real Madrid reported a profit of €11.8 million ($13.25 million) for 2022-23.

The football club has remained profitable over the last four financial years. The €893 million renovation project of the Bernabeu stadium will conclude by year-end.

Dubai Parks in April announced the permanent closure of Bollywood Parks, a theme park based on popular movies from the Indian movie industry.

“Bollywood Parks Dubai will close permanently from April 20, 2023,” the park wrote on Instagram.

Bollywood Parks was opened in 2016, with an event hosted by Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan.
