HistoryEdit

Since the launch of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Creative Sports Award in 2009, it has undergone several stages of development and improvement, which has reached the stage of the leadership and the internationalism, because of the accumulation of experience and expertise on the level of knowledge and skills.

On its 1st Edition in 2009, the award was launched as a generous gesture of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and President of the Dubai Sports Council. The award was the first of its kind in the area of sports creativity that intended to fill a major gap in sports to honor creative athletes in recognition of their outstanding achievements, support the efforts made to develop the sports sector in various fields, and uplift it to international standards. In its initial phase, the award was restricted to the local and Arab levels with three main categories determined for each level namely Individual Sports Creativity, Group Sports Creativity and Corporate Sports Creativity.

In harmony with the ambitious vision of Sheikh Ahmed Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of the Award, and with his persistent endeavors to turn the award into a unique trend whereby athletic and intellectual innovators can be honored, be it local or international innovators from different countries. The award, in its 4th Edition expanded internationally by adding achievements made in the Corporate Creative Sports Category, for which special technical regulations were issued. Thus, with this prestigious award, Dubai has become a shining spot for creative sports in the UAE, the Arab world and worldwide.

In recognition to what the award has achieved of cumulative knowledge and international placing role in sports during the past years through supporting and motivating the creatives, the award was selected as one of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) to support and disseminate knowledge, vision of the future, leadership, empowerment of community and contribution to the sustainable human development.[1]
