The ceremony will pay tribute to the history and culture of the Gulf region through a variety of performances, including music, acrobatics, traditional dances, and modern visual displays using cutting-edge technologies.

Sustainability will play a crucial role in the opening ceremony, with the event incorporating eco-friendly elements like LED lighting and recyclable materials to create an environmentally conscious celebration. Additionally, the ceremony will highlight the solidarity of the Gulf region, with all six GCC nations participating to showcase common customs and values.

The event will also shine a spotlight on youth, as young athletes from the Gulf nations come together to demonstrate the importance of sports in promoting physical and mental well-being. Fares Mohammed Al Mutawa, Secretary-General of the National Olympic Committee and Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Organizing Committee for the Gulf Youth Games, stated that the opening ceremony will be a unique and creative reflection of the rich culture and heritage of the UAE and the Gulf region.

Al Mutawa believes that the event’s focus on unity and youth promise will provide a memorable and impactful experience for all participants and attendees. The theme of the event, “Our Gulf is One… Our Youth is Promising,” underscores the spirit of camaraderie and excellence that will define the upcoming Gulf Youth Games.
