Abu Dhabi: With the 2022-23 ADNOC Pro League season kicking off, fans of different UAE clubs are set to battle it out with each other as the anticipation grows in all camps for all fans to show support for their clubs from the stands.
In an initiative to more fans to the stadiums, the 2021-22 Season of UAE Pro League witnessed the launch of Fans League Prize. A collaboration between the League and the Teams, the initiative awarded clubs with the highest average attendance over 3 match weeks with the “Periodic Fans League Prize.”
This year, the UAE Pro League has decided to extend the incentive further by awarding the 1st as well as 2nd spot clubs, which had the highest average fan attendance after the end of every match week.
The winning home side club will be awarded with a prize money of $16,335 (AED60,000), while the away side with the most average attendance will earn $10,890 (AED40,000) as prize money.
Meanwhile, the second-placed hosts will be awarded $10,890 (AED40,000) and the second-placed visitors club will gain $8168 (AED30,000) for their achievement.
The UAE Pro League has set up two essential conditions to decide the Fans League winners, stating that the minimum attendance must be no less than 2, 500 fans for the hosts and 700 fans for the visitors.
