As football fans the world over are counting down to the start of FIFA World Cup in Qatar on 20 November 2022, Avani Palm View Hotel and Avani Ibn Battuta Hotel in Dubai have unveiled an action-packed programme of viewing activities and stay packages dedicated to the beautiful game.
In a move that will gladden the hearts of football enthusiasts, Avani Palm View is starting the celebrations early with screenings of the Premier League matches throughout October at Seven Seeds — the property’s dedicated sports viewing venue this football season. In another winning move, the hotel has partnered with Budweiser and African & Eastern to raffle off a trip to Qatar to watch the FIFA World Cup final among guests who purchase a bucket or four pints of Budweiser.
There will be other prizes up for grabs too. During the daily screenings at Seven Seeds, guests will be encouraged to place their bets on the winning team, as well as taking advantage of a variety of Happy Hour offers available daily from 4 pm till 8 pm, including assorted bar bites for AED 90; AED 120 beer buckets; and two bottles of wine for AED 200. In November, Seven Seeds will launch the ‘Football Kit’ menu offering such pub favourites as beer-battered Cajun chicken strips, German beef bratwurst, Guinness beef and mushroom pie, fish and chips, and more, with cocktails starting at AED 30.
