A peaceful place
Sabine, Customer Care
I've been living in Sports City for almost 2 years now, and I don't think I'll move anytime soon. It's a very quiet and peaceful community which I absolutely love, and I think you would too if you don't like busy neighborhoods. What I love most about the area is Kickers; it's a chill-on-weekdays, busy-on-weekends bar that overlooks the football field. So you can eat and drink and watch friendly matches, almost like you're in Camp Nou. What is also great in Sports City is the Cricket Stadium; every now and then it hosts tournaments such as the Pakistan League, and that's when the area gets busy! It is good switch from all the quietness that you get on a daily basis."
