Fantastic looking shirt, ideal for a collector or for framing. A classic player and a great piece of football memorabilia.
In 2007 however, an event occurred which shook the club to its very core. A letter arrived from Dubai Municipality informing the Club that the lands it had been bequeathed over 40 years before were to be reclaimed by the Dubai Municipality in order to facilitate space for the dynamic expansion of the city. The operating landscape for Dubai Exiles and the other rugby clubs in the UAE was about to change beyond all recognition.
With the loss of the Al Awir grounds, the Exiles needed a large new home, and they needed one fast. Fortunately two other renowned Dubai institutions, Emirates Airline and Dubai College stepped in to assist.
Emirates had already become the main sponsor of the international section of the Dubai 7s, and was well on the path to becoming a globally recognised brand in many sports, in particular Rugby, Cricket and Soccer. The airline promptly announced the development of a new, world class, multi-pitch rugby facility outside of the city on the Al Ain road.
Some 18 months after the Exiles lost their old home, they moved down the E66 to become a tenant at the appropriately named “7he Sevens” stadium.
