Algeria-Germany match draws record turnout at Monte Carlo Stars in Dubai Marina

MUMBAI: Despite the late timing of the Algeria-Germany match and the event coinciding with the holy month of Ramadan, Arabs fans sat with high excitement in front of TV screens cheering wildly the only Arab team in the World Cup in Brazil.


Monte Carlo Stars, a top destination that is offering the World Cup matches at the largest terrace overlooking Dubai Marina, has been drawing a huge number of football fans since the start of the World Cup.


Ibrahim Al Sheikh, General Manager, Monte Carlo Stars Dubai said: “The audience waited with bated breath until the last minute of the extra time. We were thrilled with the turnout, which reflects Arab support to the only Arab team in World Cup 2014. It also reflects the diversity of cultures living in the UAE who are watching the games with great enthusiasm.”


Al Sheikh said: "We congratulate the Algerian national team on their impressive performance despite their exit from the competition, and we expect a higher adrenaline rush as we come closer to the final matches.”


Al Sheikh added: “Monte Carlo Stars has created a great ambience for our visitors who are coming here for Iftars and Suhoors as well as to watch the World Cup matches.”


The Monte Carlo Stars, which has spectacular views of the Dubai Marina, is the largest marina terrace area providing the ultimate experience for each visitor through high-quality service.


Al Sheikh concluded: "We are targeting broader segments of Dubai multicultural society in particular. The record turnout during the historic Algeria-Germany match was a proof of this.”


It should be noted that Algeria became the third Arab team to qualify for the second round of the World Cup after Morocco in 1986 and Saudi Arabia in 1994.
