Located on the Greenwich peninsula on the banks of the River Thames, the North Greenwich Arena has hosted many large-scale sports and entertainment events over the past decade.
During London 2012, it's hosting Artistic and Trampoline Gymnastics, as well as some matches in the Basketball and Wheelchair Basketball competitions.
Design and build
Originally built for the Millennium celebrations, North Greenwich Arena has been transformed into a world renowned entertainment destination featuring a 20,000-seater, multi-use arena, an 11-screen cinema, bars, restaurants and more. It opened to the public in June 2007.
Transforming North Greenwich Arena into a London 2012 venue included the installation of temporary items such as tents, cabins, signeage, services and equipment in and around the venue.
After the Games
When the London 2012 Games draw to a close, North Greenwich Arena will return to being a multi-purpose music, sports and entertainment venue.
