Since officially opening in 2005, Coventry Arena has become a world class destination. The main stadium can accommodate more than 32,500 spectators, with the capacity rising to 40,000 for music events, and is also home to Premiership Rugby Team Wasps and Coventry City FC.
The Coventry Arena has witnessed some unforgettable sporting moments – from Coventry-born Andy Goode setting an Aviva Premiership Rugby record, with the most points scored in a single match – to Wasps recording their biggest ever win in the Champions Cup. Its record attendance to a sporting event was in 2015 with 32,019 Wasps and Leicester Tigers fans showing their support in the local derby. It is one of the country's leading conference and exhibition destinations, having won numerous national awards.
The future for Coventry Arena is exciting with multi-million pound investment support from the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) through the Government’s Getting Building Fund Local Growth Fund and Growing Places Fund, transforming major areas of the arena and establishing growth for years to come.
