  • The pillar partnership comes as part of the developer’s commitment to promote and encourage high calibre events in the emirate.   

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 20 January 2022: Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, is once again sponsoring the Dubai World Cup Carnival, taking place from January till the end of March 2022, as part of its long-standing pillar partnership with Dubai Racing Club and its master-planned community presence in MBR City. This prestigious event on the racing calendar, which Azizi is now sponsoring for the fifth consecutive year, has seven races taking place the night of Friday, January 21st, all of which are sponsored and named by the developer.

Mr Mirwais Azizi, Founder and Chairman of Azizi Developments and Mr Farhad Azizi, CEO of Azizi Developments, along with senior management, will present the winners of the seven races of the Dubai World Cup Carnival Race Meet with valuable prizes.

In his comments, Mr Mirwais Azizi said: “We are proud and thrilled to once again, for the fifth time, sponsor and be part of this world-class event. The Dubai World Cup Carnival is an event that truly raises the bar for excellence every year and brings communities together to celebrate their love for a sport that is deeply rooted in the UAE's culture and heritage. We will continue to sponsor high-profile events that put this magnificent emirate — a worldwide leader in both business and tourism – on the international stage."

This year’s Dubai World Cup Carnival Race Meet, on January 21st, is worth a combined $810,000 in prize money across its seven races. The event runs annually from January to March and is a season of high-class international race days, championed by the most successful, high-profile owners, trainers, jockeys and horses in the world. It runs alongside the domestic Racing at Meydan season and paves the way for the Dubai World Cup.

Riviera, Azizi Developments’ master planned communities in MBR City, near the upcoming Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Grandstand – home of the Dubai World Cup, is part of the developer’s award-winning portfolio. It is a stylish waterfront-lifestyle destination conveniently located in the heart of Mohammed Bin Rashid City, amid the city’s business, leisure, and retail hubs, close to all of Dubai’s noteworthy points of interest. 

Designed to introduce the French-Mediterranean lifestyle to Dubai, which is not merely about architectural art but also about a certain ‘joie de vivre’ — a celebration of life, an exultation of spirit — Riviera represents a new landmark destination that is both residential and commercial, with an abundance of retail space. Riviera features three districts: an extensive retail boulevard, a lagoon walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a vast, lush-green social space. 

Recently, Azizi Developments announced the addition of a 2.7-kilometre-long crystal lagoon to Riviera, covering an area of over 130,026 square metres that will stretch across the entirety of the community. With stunning blue flooring, filled with more than 51.5 million gallons of crystal-clear, desalinated and clean water that residents can swim in, and easily accessible via its lagoon walk — which will also feature a vast variety of artisan eateries and boutiques — Azizi’s lagoon will be a bustling space where residents can enjoy strolls along the beach-like shores, sunbathe and cool off.

Azizi Developments’ Sales Gallery can be visited on the 13th floor of the Conrad Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road.
