Task: We were tasked with launching the inaugural UAE School Games on behalf of the UAE Sports Federation for Schools and University Education as "a nationwide youth sports initiative, with the goal of encouraging young athletes to participate in competitive sports and elevate their athletic abilities.
What we did: Inspiratus played a pivotal role in designing and organizing the tournament and the grand closing ceremony. In its inaugural year, we launched the initiative with nine sports, including: Athletics, Swimming, Badminton, Archery, Fencing, Judo, Taekwondo, and the exciting addition of Jiu-Jitsu and football for the finals. These Olympic sports, widely practiced in schools across the UAE, offer a broad platform for participation, with both male and female athletes competing equally. This opens doors for them to strive for world-class standards, discover their talents, and contemplate professional sports pathways to represent the UAE both nationally and internationally. For the closing ceremony, our aim was to bring together VVIPs, schools, families, and friends, creating a memorable event that featured multiple sports simultaneously. After the conclusion of the final competitions, we put together a stunning closing ceremony, featuring projection mapping, live dance performances, and pyrotechnics, ensuring the event ended on a high note.
