AC Milan Burj Khalifa

AC Milan reached dizzying new heights on Friday, when they played football at the top of the world’s tallest building, The Burj Khalifa.

With a pitch specially created on the towering 828 metre-plus structure, the AC Milan team took their game to levels never seen before.

The AC Milan squad were in Dubai for their Winter Tour and the Emirates Challenge Cup which was played against Al Ahli Club on Sunday January 2.

“As the new Fly Emirates shirt sponsors of AC Milan, we always knew Emirates could help take the team to a higher level and we certainly demonstrated this today,” said Mohammed Mattar, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Airport Services.

After rising to the early morning challenge, the team took in the spectacular views across Dubai from the 124th floor observation deck before heading off to a training session at Al Ahli Club.
