Practices and games will resume in January after a 10-month suspension, due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Here is all the information you need for the 2021 American Football Season.
Games are played on Friday afternoons – usually between 1 pm – 5pm.
We typically play in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, although this season, the border crossings may be a bit more challenging.
In Dubai, we play at the Jebel Ali Shooting Club. In Abu Dhabi, at American Community School.
We play a 5-game regular season plus playoffs, culminating in the Desert Bowl Championship.
We normally play on a full-sized field, complete with line markings, referees, music, and sometimes even the cheer team!
A complete schedule of game days, match-ups, kickoff times, and locations will be shared with the members at the beginning of the season.
Equipment rental is included with your annual membership fee:
- Jersey and Pants
- Shoulder Pads
- Leg padding
For those who wish to own their equipment, helmets, shoulder pads, gloves, and additional padding is available for purchase through the League.
2021 Season Fees are
2,950 AED (inclusive of VAT).
- All Practices & Games from Jan – March
- Equipment Rental

This season we will split into two divisions:
Juniors – Age 8 – 13
Seniors – Age 13-16
(Age as of January 1st, 2021)
Abu Dhabi – Jan 5th, 2021
As of today, team sports for athletes ages 11 and under are not currently permitted in Abu Dhabi. As such, our Juniors team is on hold in Abu Dhabi until such restriction are lifted.
(Seriously. Check back 2nd week of Jan)
