Chris Brown, Centre of Excellence Academy Manager said “We’re delighted to be organising an event that incorporates top ex-players, yet provides the local community with the chance to compete as well. We know that when England and Scotland clash in football it’s always going to be a competitive game with committed support both on the pitch and from both sets of supporters. We are thrilled to be bringing ex-international players to the UAE and couldn’t do it without the support of our sponsors, including R&M Wholesale Electric, Virgin Atlantic, Porsche, PIC, Pemco Supplies and 7Days and of course the backing of Dubai Sports Council”.
