The next generation store concept was developed in line with adidas’ love of sport and celebrates the brand’s proud and authentic sports heritage to give consumers its best in-store experience yet. It is the first of its kind to be launched in Dubai with Beckham the ultimate guest of honour, bringing the concept to life.

After the opening Beckham said; “I always love coming to Dubai – it’s a special place that’s constantly evolving, just like Adidas and their stores. Spending some time here today, it was great to get a sense of the energy people have for sport. In Dubai I’ve met people from all around the world who are united in their passion for sport.”
“The store at Mall of the Emirates is a new home for sport fans. It’s a unique place that takes the consumer experience to an entirely new level by featuring sport and passion in every single element. David’s appearance at the store this week is a bold statement that signals our commitment to the region and our intent to put fans at the heart of sport. It is the start of exciting new journey for adidas and for fans, all starting as soon as they enter the store”, added Jason Thomas, Managing Director, adidas Middle East and Northern Africa .
A key feature of the new adidas HomeCourt concept is the Arena Façade, creating a bold, distinctive new look for adidas. Like an entrance gate, the Tunnel Entry draws consumers into the big game and welcomes every visitor with a “sound shower” of cheering fans into the stadium.
