Abu Dhabi: The UAE Pro League has revealed the victorious participants of its “Fans’ League” initiative, which took place during matchweek 24 of the ADNOC Pro League in a recent announcement. This exciting initiative allowed fans to engage more closely with the league and show their support for their favourite teams.
To encourage greater fan attendance, the UAE Pro League has introduced new changes to the 2022-23 Fans’ League. Under these amendments, prizes will be awarded to clubs based on their average fan attendance after each matchweek. This move is aimed at incentivizing clubs to attract more fans to the stadium and create a more vibrant atmosphere for the league’s matches.

To determine the winners of the Fans’ League, the UAE Pro League established two critical criteria that needed to be met. Firstly, the minimum attendance for the host team had to be no less than 2,500 fans. Secondly, the visiting team had to have a minimum of 700 fans in attendance. These conditions were put in place to ensure a high level of fan engagement and to create a lively and enjoyable experience for all those involved.
