AC Milan Soccer Team Poses At World's Tallest Building
When Dubai's sail-shaped Burj al Arab first opened back in 2005 we saw Andre Agassi and Roger Federer play tennis on its helipad and Tiger Woods take a few golf swings from the same location. Dubai's latest star, Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, which opened earlier this year, has now been getting its fair share of stunt publicity. Tom Cruise dangled off the side while filming the latest Mission Impossible sequel and now a soccer team, AC Milan, played what might be the world's highest soccer game.
AC Milan squad are in Dubai for their Winter Tour and the Emirates Challenge Cup which will be played against Al Ahli Club on Sunday. They took the opportunity to ascend to the 124th floor observation deck and pose for a few pictures on a specially created pitch in the sky before heading off to a training session at Al Ahli Club. The team is sponsored by Emirates Airlines.
The AC Milan stars Ronaldinho, Robinho and Pato can be seen training at Al Ahli Club in sessions that are open to the public. New AC Milan signing, Antonio Cassano, will appear in his first match for the club on Sunday while the UAE side is captained by former Italian international Fabio Cannavaro.
