Get Ready to Play with the Pros at Bluewater’s Newest Attraction: Ballerz Football Dome!

A new and exciting football tournament is set to take place at the brand new Ballerz football dome, located at the Bluewater Shopping Centre. This state-of-the-art entertainment centre has been eagerly anticipated and is set to attract famous names from the world of football.

On May 16, former professionals such as Rio Ferdinand, Bobby Zamora, Roberto Carlos, and Mark Noble will compete in the Battle of the Ballerz tournament. They will be joined by DJ Mark Knight, Lioness legend Fara Williams, professional freestyler Harriet Pavlou, and former England player Joe Cole for what promises to be an immersive and competitive event.

The 30,000 sq ft arena, designed by top former professional players and coaches, features a six-a-side 5G football pitch with Premier League-style changing rooms, stadium-style seating, and a players’ tunnel. It even has the ability to show instant replays pitch-side.

Excited about the launch, Rio Ferdinand stated, “We are giving the beautiful game a makeover, with a stunning pitch and unique touches that will create an electric atmosphere. Ballerz is designed to make every player feel like a star.” Mark Noble added, “The response we have had to the development of Ballerz has been phenomenal and we have big plans for the launch.”

With over 1,000 inquiries already received, the centre is expected to offer coaching for children and provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for seven lucky individuals to have a coaching session with ex-Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand. The Ballerz dome is set to open on May 18 and is expected to attract 250,000 visitors in its first year, creating 50 new jobs.

James Waugh, Centre Director at Bluewater, expressed his excitement about the new addition to the leisure offering at Bluewater, stating, “We have had months of anticipation since the announcement of the Ballerz dome last December. Our guests are already excited by the addition of Ballerz’s unique concept to our leisure offering here at Bluewater, and we know they will be thrilled to be able to start booking their own time on the pitch. We are honored to be home to the first Ballerz location globally, and the launch will mark another milestone in our 25th anniversary year.”

The football dome is located on the Upper Thames Walk car park, next to the entrance of the Showcase Cinema and Gravity trampoline park. With an estimated cost of £3 million, the Ballerz dome is expected to be a popular destination and an exciting addition to the Bluewater Shopping Centre.
