About Swansea Arena

Swansea Arena will sit as the crowning jewel within the £135m regeneration scheme ‘Copr Bay’, located next to the famous Swansea Marina, beachfront and a brand-new 1.1 acre coastal park. Over £1 billion is being invested across the City, allowing Swansea to realise its potential to be one of the most vibrant places to live, work, visit and study in the UK.

Music and comedy will be at the heart of Swansea Arena’s programme, alongside e-gaming, sports, conferences and events within its multi-purpose divisible auditorium. This newly constructed flexible venue will have a capacity of 3,500, able to seat 2,200, host 150 guests in the VIP lounge and serve food and beverage at 9 outlets throughout the venue. 2,000m² of exhibition space will see the venue regularly host up to 2,500 visitors at conferences and events. Offering full dining and banqueting for up to 750 people plus 10 dedicated meeting rooms serving 8 – 150 people, Swansea Arena will be the largest conferencing and events venue in the vicinity of Swansea.
