As its one of the biggest and best football stadiums in UAE, Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium hosted most of the matches of FIFA U-17 World Cup, during the period between 17th of October and the 8th of November; including the opening and final ceremonies and matches, the matches of A Group, and some of the other rounds fixtures.
This busy schedule forced Al Jazira team to take a long away journey and play their matches away from home, where the last home match date goes back to the 21st of September, when the team hosted Al Wasl in the 2nd round of the Arabian Gulf League.
The team started this journey when they faced Al Shabab in Maktoum bin Rashid at 26 October in the 3rd round of the league and beat them by 4 goals to 2, and they kept moving away when they visited Dubai on the 9th of October as part of the 4th round of the League Cup.
When the league matches resumed, Al Jazira welcomed their guests in Al Nahyan Satdium of Al Wahda Club; they hosted Ajman in the 4th round of the league at October 19, then they became guests to Al Dhafra in the 5th round at 25th of October, and then they returned to Al Nahyan and welcomed Dubai in the 6th league round.
In the Cup 5th league, Al Jazira hosted Al Ain at the 7th of November and won the match by 3 goals to 1, and they visited Bani Yas in the 6th round and lost by 1 goal to 3.
Back to the league, Al Jazira returned to Al Nahyan Stadium, but this time they were the guests of the home team Al Wahda in the 7th round match at 23rd of November.
At last, they will end this long journey and return to their home, Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium in November 28th, when they welcome Al Nasr in the 8th league round. The stadium will not host any Cup match until the 2nd of March of the next year 2013, when Al Jazira welcome Al Wahda in the last match of the first round.
