Sponsored: One of the best spots in Dubai to catch all the live action…

When it comes to the Rugby World Cup, sure you can catch all the action at home, but what you really want is an electric atmosphere packed with other screaming and cheering fans. No, you don’t need to teleport to France, you just need to head on over to garden on 8 at Media One Hotel.

The bustling spot in Dubai Media City is transforming its garden into a massive rugby fan zone where you’ll find much more than just great food and drink deals.

From the cool entrance arch to your favourite team t-shirts and flags – the garden will have it all. For a stadium-type vibe, a giant floaty rugby ball will be passed around and you will even be able to scribble messages of support to your team.
