Manchester City’s world-first interactive City Challenge experience to kick off at Yas Mall

Manchester City Football Club is set to launch a new, interactive experience at Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi.

This unique venue will give visitors of all ages and ability the chance to test and improve their football skills while immersing themselves in City themed challenges that connect with one of the world’s most successful clubs.


Open from 15 December 2023, the one-of-a-kind attraction will offer engaging, immersive, and fun activities, and challenges – all of which are designed to test your physical and mental skills, and they'll use innovative technology, giving you a score for your individual attributes.


You'll begin your challenge by creating a virtual companion avatar. Then you'll enter the game arena, where you can step into the boots of your heroes and find out what it feels like to be the likes of Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, Steph Houghton, or Alex Greenwood, as well as experiencing the atmosphere of the Etihad Stadium.


Once inside the arena, you can test your speed, reflexes, agility, have the chance to rank on a leaderboard, and step up to take a penalty against City Challenge’s robot goalkeeper.


City Challenge will also chart the club’s incredible football journey to date. This includes the stories behind some of their most significant achievements over the years, famous kits dating back to 1884, and of course a celebration of their extensive trophy haul. 


The venue will soon feature the perfect place to sit and enjoy live Manchester City games and highlights – with food and beverage options to help create the ultimate matchday experience.
