The Covid19 pandemic brought massive challenges to the Dubai sports sector where hosting international mega-sport events has been cut short. In historical context throughout a pandemic, no country’s health system is fully in their control. This research paper takes a closer examination as to how the Dubai's sports industry has collided with the global Covid-19 pandemic as sports events have been cancelled worldwide, as star athletes have been infected with the virus, and as sports viewers have been moved online. This study will answer as to how the Dubai's sport industry progressed into hold sporting events during the on-going pandemic. With contributors from different governing bodies in Dubai, this academic essay offers commentaries from government leaders, five mega-sports event cases conducted during the pandemic, and an informed analysis across the making of Dubai’s guideline for international mega-sports management during a pandemic. While Covid19 will automatically lodge a long threat over sporting events for years to follow, and although the set of circumstances is progressing fast, the future is still undetermined with the Covid19 virus not yet contained. This essay offers some important perspectives on how hosting international sports events influence policies and practices during a global health crisis. Cities like Dubai are expected to think of solutions with great importance for other countries to duplicate significantly. Dubai knows that infectious diseases like the Covid-19 virus are always aggregated concern for a nation because these pathogens are infectious. A single person’s choices can undulate outward to affect another human being, whole cities, entire countries, and neighboring continents; one individual infected by the virus can seed a meridian worth of indisposed Covid-19 cases. Each person’s odds of getting infected is dependent on the choices of everyone around them. Components in being able to host international mega-sport event during an on-going pandemic is built on relationships of trust between nations, commitment to sports and the brand personality of the host city Dubai. However this research has not encompassed the full guideline on those relationships on international sports event. There are no existing models that fit into this research. This research aimed to identify the relationships between engagements in different international sports federations with Dubai. Results showed significant positive correlations between several variables illustrating that Dubai does have an impact into the way they handled the pandemic, how they trust and remain committed to fight against it. Different health protocols from different government agencies were gathered in this essay, giving out questionnaires to governing heads and in-depth interviews were used as a means of gathering data. This paper also examines how perceptions of competence do influence leadership behavior in Dubai’s sports management. Fueling fact-finding research was conducted involving the gathering qualitative data to support decisions to hold events during the pandemic. The sample considered in the study consisted of five government industries (airline, hospitality, transport, F&B, health authorities) working collectively in creating the guideline for the Dubai Sport Council. The arguments concerning self-efficacy and leadership behavior will be highlighted. Content analysis will help decode the sports comeback of Dubai earlier as it should have been as obtained from the use of cluster methods, hence allowing to directly answer the major concerns that rouse from the contradictory responses it revealed. The unprecedented leadership qualities from Dubai’s government figureheads and its policies during the pandemic helps in the development of creating a safe environment for all, which in turn contributed to the successful performance of the sports council seeing that their leaders are motivated to fight the pandemic against the odds. Self-efficacy exposed leadership qualities with principal authorities performing with unparalleled positive results. Self-efficacy made the governing leaders of Dubai undertake the challenges of the pandemic head on, that tasks to combat the health crisis can be fulfilled successfully, and hence continue executing solutions even if success is not achieved immediately. The academic paper will provide practical findings from actual mega-events that involved in helping attain more leadership development interventions and focus towards improving the guidelines for hosting international events in its performances. Successive training initiatives aimed at problem-solving skill improvement and the implementation of strategies for self-leadership was now the engine of the core agenda. The outcome of these leadership trainings can help the governing body of Dubai from different industries, as a whole, develop their talents to a full and organize themselves to be efficient, effective and motivated to perform better as ever. The limitations of this study and suggestions for future research are discussed.
