The beginning of our adventure: Abdul Aziz Baker opens a small butchery supplying fresh Western meat, fish and cold cuts.
In 1977, a simple objective became a small one-shop business in Dubai. Just as its home market of the UAE has been transformed over the past 40 years, GMG has witnessed radical transformation, expanding from that single shop to become a global well-being company.
Our story of sport begins with a flying shoe. While watching a football match, Abdul Aziz Baker found himself transfixed - not by the game itself, but by a flying shoe - the result of a ferocious free-kick. An idea was born instantly: to invite the best, most innovative sporting brands to Dubai's retail market.
