Centre Of Excellence

JA Resorts & Hotels developed the JA Centre of Excellence in conjunction with My Group Direct. The concept was initiated when the need was identified for a warm weather training facility in Dubai.

The JA Centre of Excellence has now gained the reputation as the United Arab Emirates premier warm weather training facility, hosting top European Football Clubs and International Teams .

The JA Centre of Excellence is a purpose built training facility 'designed by professionals for professionals'. The Centre consists of three fully floodlit international sized football pitches providing the best playing surface in Dubai.  The JA Centre of Excellence now also has a floodlit FIFA 2 star artificial pitch which is also IRB certified which means the artificial pitch can host football & rugby games on it.

Visiting teams are guaranteed maximum training time, as the playing surface is kept in excellent condition without any disruptive maintenance downtime. The JA Centre of Excellence also offers an impressive selection of training equipment, treatment rooms and private changing facilities.
