The Dubai Sports Council (DSC) has invited athletes to prepare for next year's re-arranged Olympic Games in Tokyo at training camps in the Emirate.
Dubai is planning on hosting a number of athletes and teams in the run-up to Tokyo 2020, which was postponed until July 23 to August 8 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is a destination often used for training camps due to its warm climate.
The DSC claims it is in contact with a number of International Federations and National Olympic Committees wishing to set up camps in the Emirate, and has pledged to provide all necessary resources, including entry visas.
Usage of facilities such as the Hamdan Sports Complex and Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex has been offered.
Among the events staged at the Hamdan Sports Complex are the 2010 World Swimming Championships (25 metre), in which 153 countries participated.
It also hosted the final games of the 2014 international Basketball Association Under-17 World Championship and the 2015 Volleyball Men's Under-23 World Championship.
The Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex has hosted several leading English Premier League teams, including Manchester United seeking a winter training venue.
Facilities at Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex include fully-equipped gymnasium, swimming pool, plunge pool, steam room, sauna and hi-tech extras such as an altitude chamber, cryo chamber, climate chamber and a performance lab to give coaches data.
The DSC is also committed to holding the training camps with strict COVID-19 protocol and precautionary measures in place, it has promised.
Spectators have recently been allowed back into sporting events in Dubai, with venues allowed to admit a maximum of 30 percent of its capacity.
The United Arab Emirates has reported more than 152,800 coronavirus cases in total, resulting in 538 deaths.
The pandemic has also had an impact on the organisation of Tokyo 2020.
Organisers are relying on a coronavirus countermeasures taskforce, formed of officials from the Japanese Government, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Tokyo 2020, to come up with measures and ways to allow the Games to run as scheduled in 2021.
Policies are expected to be announced before the end of the year.
