New Adidas film on Race For Deserts features Zidane


Continuing to build on his contributions to help reduce our impact on the environment, adidas unites people across sport to create change by inviting the city of Dubai to Race for the Deserts on November 27. The event aims to raise awareness of the threat of plastic pollution in our deserts while supporting the nation’s vision for a more sustainable future.

Narrated via powerful footage shot across the city of Dubai, the film provides a glimpse into how one of the world’s most prosperous cities emerged from the desert, encouraging residents to preserve the nation’s birthplace and to help end plastic waste.

Starring football legend Zidane and several adidas brand ambassadors including Raha Moharrak, Walid Yari and Baraa El Sabbagh as well as adidas Runners coaches George Crew, Elizabeth Thompson and Lucy Murt, the movie “Race for the Deserts” tours destinations such as Dubai Design District and the historic Al Bastakiya, before ending in the epic Al Qudra Desert.
