Located in the heart of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Zayed Sports City is the leading destination for sports and entertainment in the UAE.

Abu Dhabi Capital city of the United Arab Emirates

Abu Dhabi is the capital and the second most populous city of the United Arab Emirates, and also capital of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the largest of the UAE's seven emirates. Abu Dhabi lies on a T-shaped island jutting into the Persian Gulf from the central western coast. The city of Abu Dhabi has an estimated population of 1.8 million in 2016.

United Arab Emirates Country in Western Asia

The United Arab Emirates, sometimes simply called the Emirates, is a country in Western Asia at the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sharing maritime borders with Qatar to the west and Iran to the north. The sovereign constitutional monarchy is a federation of seven emirates consisting of Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm Al Quwain. Their boundaries are complex, with numerous enclaves within the various emirates. Each emirate is governed by a ruler; together, they jointly form the Federal Supreme Council. One of the rulers serves as the President of the United Arab Emirates. In 2013, the UAE's population was 9.2 million, of which 1.4 million are Emirati citizens and 7.8 million are expatriates.

Supported personally by his Highness the Supreme Prince and Commander In Chief of the United Arab Emirates National Army, H. H. Sheik Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the inaugural 2008 tournament had the prize purse of US$111,000. [1] This amount was increased further to US$150,000 in 2010 [2] and is planned to increase to US$272,000 (AED 1,000,000) in 2011, which are the largest money prizes in history of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments. [3]

Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi

H.H Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, commonly known as MBZ or MbZ, is the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE's Armed Forces. He is seen as the driving force behind the UAE's activist foreign policy and is a leader of a campaign against Islamist movements in Arabia. Due to the ill health of the UAE president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, Mohamed bin Zayed assumed most of the presidential duties as the Abu Dhabi crown prince and hence, he is sometimes considered as the UAE’s de facto ruler.

Participation in the trials is not mandatory; however the winners of the trials have an all expenses (airfare, hotel, meals) paid trip to Abu Dhabi for the tournament.
