The arena is expected to totally revolutionize the show business industry in the UAE! It is set to accommodate over 17,000 guests for concerts, festivals, conferences, exhibitions, and a variety of sports events like hockey, boxing, basketball, and more.

The developer added that the work on external infrastructure and landscaping, including paving and parking spaces, was underway, and that the finishing touches were also being made to the first of the arena’s 46 hospitality suites. The arena will be operated by AEG Ogden, who also operate the O2 Arena in London.
