Expo 2020 Kicks Off Three-Month Countdown Featuring Lionel Messi

There’s a great deal of hype surrounding Expo 2020, and they’re raising the anticipation one notch further featuring Lionel Messi in a promotional countdown video.

If you’re a long-timer in Dubai, chances are the flashback of Dubai winning the Expo 2020 bid in 2013 feels like yesterday. Fast forward to 2021, we’re only three months away from the global exhibition and just in time for the 90-day countdown, they’ve released a jaw-dropping clip of Lionel Messi kicking a football into the Al Wasl Plaza. Check it out:

It’s worth reminding this isn’t the first time Messi featured in an Expo 2020. The football stalwart is one of the ambassadors of the Expo and starred in a campaign two years ago.

Unless you’re in the know, Expo 2020 is set to welcome the world from 1st October, 2021 to 31st March, 2022, and they’ve recently rolled out advance ticket pricing set to go on sale from 18th July. There are three options: A one-day pass for Dhs 95, a multi-day pass for Dhs 195 with an unrestricted entry for a month, and a Dhs495 pass with entry throughout the six-month-long event.

People of determination, seniors aged 60+, students with a valid school/university card, and under-18s can enter for free.
