Burj Khalifa transforms into giant scoreboard for FIFA World Cup
It’s the world’s highest football scoreboard!
The Burj Khalifa has been used as a canvas for a lot of special events in its time – featuring national flags, dazzling light shows, and even movie release countdowns. And now, it’s just added scorekeeper to its CV.
The world’s tallest building will transform into a live LED scoreboard for the duration of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which is currently taking place in Russia.
During each match, the Burj will provide a live steam of updates for football fans, and light up with the flag of the winning nation.
Here’s a snap from yesterday’s match which saw Serbia emerge victorious against Costa Rica:
And here’s the Burj Khalifa lighting up for Mexico after its surprise win over Germany:
Pretty cool, huh? You can catch the action from viewing spots along the Dubai Mall Waterfront Promenade or from Burj Park. And for more on the World Cup, be sure to check out our friends over at FourFourTwo Arabia.
