Your ultimate guide to Dubai World Cup 2024

One of the most stunning racing days of the world, the Dubai World Cup 2024, will take place at the renowned Meydan Racecourse soon. Tickets for the Saturday, March 30, 2024 Dubai World Cup are still available.

The Dubai World Cup will again take place during Ramadan this year. This year, in addition to the familiar offerings, there is a new addition: iftar hospitality at the Sky Bubble.

The Dubai World Cup, the last race on Saturday’s race card, is, of course, the primary attraction. But there’s so much more for guests to enjoy at this enormous athletic extravaganza. This is your guide to the 2024 Dubai World Cup, whether or not you enjoy horse racing.


The 28th race of the Dubai World Cup will take place in 2024. Horses and their trainers will travel from all around the world to compete in the famous event, which will feature nine races throughout the day.

The first race is scheduled for 3.30 pm, the Dubai World Cup is the last race, and doors open at 12 pm. The nine elite races provide a combined purse of US$ 30.5 million, but the main focus will be on the day’s penultimate race, in which the current Kabirkhan, Senor Buscador, the recent Saudi Cup winner, and Ushba Tesoro, the winner of last year, will compete for the title in a field of twelve.

Tickets details and pricing

There are still tickets available for buy; general admission tickets start at just Dhs20.

The most sought-after option is the Apron Views ticket, which costs Dhs 295; this year, McGettigans, the masters of good craic and fantastic times, are curating and running the entire area. Tickets for Apron Views provide you entry to the bustling athletic village, which is brimming with eateries, entertainment, and more. For Dhs99, you can now upgrade your ticket to include bus transportation to Meydan and a welcome drink at McGettigan’s.

Visitors can enjoy the Holy Month at the racetrack since it will be Ramadan. Only soft beverages and gourmet finger food will be served during an Iftar supper at the Sky Bubble. The price of the Iftar is Dhs595 for adults and Dhs300 for children under the age of twelve. There is a rigorous first-come, first-served policy for seating, and reservations for tables are not available.

What to wear

Make sure you go shopping for your outfit before it’s too late. The crowd at the Dubai World Cup needs to be well-groomed, just like the horses. Men and women usually pull out the stops for this special day. And by that, we mean headwear; expect to see anything from massive fascinators to eye-catching trilbies.

In the Apron Views, there’s a fashion show called the Style Stakes, where attendees fight for prizes wearing sharp suits, high heels, and lots of bling. The best-dressed men, women, and couples—as with the most creative hat—win prizes in the style competition. Remember that casual attire is strictly prohibited, and that flip-flops, shorts, and jeans aren’t allowed anywhere in the Meydan Grandstand—even if you are not vying for design marks.

Dubai World Cup at Meydan Racecourse on Saturday, March 30, from Dhs 295 at 12 p.m. onwards.
