Representing the University in sports is a lot of fun but it is a privilege as well. Although we greet all students to actively participate and practice to keep fit, positions in the first teams and possible scholarships will be reserved for students who:

  • Successfully maintain the good academic standing, with no Fail grades throughout the year
  • Regularly attend university classes (as well as practice sessions for sports)
  • Follow and promote the “No Smoking in Sports” policy of our university

For more information and guide on students’ involvement in sports and other activities, please seek for the Students Activities Handbook from the Activities Department, Room 307A, Block 16.

Middlesex United FC

The football team that represents Middlesex University Dubai is ‘Middlesex United’. This team entered the Dubai Amateur League (Division Three) back in the 2008-2009 season. After a great season and many winnings they were promoted to Division Two in the 2009-2010 season, where they have successfully maintained a steady mid table position for two academic years. Last year, the teams had an amazing season and have achieved the distinction of qualifying for the First Division.
Middlesex United is coached by a Dubai based professional football coach who has years of playing and coaching experience in the GCC. Training sessions are held on a weekly basis during term time.
