Ballerz Opening Date Confirmed

Famous names from the world of football, music and entertainment will be among the first to showcase the multi-million-pound Ballerz dome – ahead of the official opening to the public on Saturday 18 May.

As the launch approaches, more details are being revealed about the first-of-its-kind Ballerz dome, backed by former pro footballers and set to deliver a mix of training, gaming and entertainment. The new 30,000sq ft football dome at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent will be home to an immersive football experience and 6-a-side stadium-style 5G pitch loaded with tech, including instant goal replays, together with pro changing rooms, stadium-style seating and players’ tunnel.

Ballerz has been created by Rio Ferdinand, Bobby Zamora, Roberto Carlos and Mark Noble, alongside a team of sport and hospitality industry specialists. The highly anticipated new competitive socialising concept has already received over 1,000 enquires and bookings are now live on the Ballerz website. Visitors will be able to pre-book 30 or 60-minute sessions in the Skillzone, as well as private pitch hire, parties, events and training.

Speaking ahead of the Ballerz opening, Rio Ferdinand said: “We’re giving the beautiful game a makeover, with a stunning pitch and unique touches that’ll create an electric atmosphere – including big screen replays, crowd noise, and all your best match highlights ready to share. Ballerz is designed to make every player feel like a star. The immersive tech in our Skillzone will challenge players to seven specially developed football fitness games that test your technical, physical and mental skill. It’ll all be tracked with your QR wristband – so you can focus on achieving your personal best and see if you beat the scores of the Ballerz football legends. There’s also The Heineken Lounge, Ballerz Café and gaming lounge, so visitors can fuel up, wind down and enjoy the ultimate football experience.”
