Wimbledon 2017: Where & how to watch it in Dubai
With BeIN still blocked, it’s ‘advantage’ live stream.
It’s a big day for Tennis fans. Wimbledon’s most eagerly awaited match, the mens final, kicks off on centre court at 5pm (GST) this afternoon.
But this year, many tennis fans in Dubai had been left disappointed after BeIN’s exclusive deal with Wimbledon left fans without the much anticipated coverage of the tournament. Thankfully, Wimbledon was on hand with live-streamed coverage both on the official site and via Twitter. Both have been completely free.
It’s the 11th final appearance for Tennis legend Roger Federer, who won his 7th title back in 2012, as he competes against Marin Cilic to become Wimbledon champion.
There’s a lot riding on this match for Federer. The tennis ace will become the first man ever to win eight titles should he beat Cilic this afternoon. A win would also make him the oldest champion in the open era ahead of his 36 birthday next month.
So how can you watch the final of Wimbledon in Dubai?
Thankfully, the live stream is available for the final and coverage on the live channel has already begun. The game will hit centre court from 5pm (GST). Live stream is available on both the official Wimbledon website and Twitter page.
There are also some sports bars in Dubai who are showing the Wimbledon coverage, so call ahead to check if your favourite is!
