About the Arena/Events Centre
The new Greater Sudbury Arena/Event Centre will have:
- 5,800 seats as a sporting venue
- capacity for 6,500 for concerts
The current Sudbury Community Arena has:
- 4,610 seats and capacity for 5,100 during concerts
The Kingsway Entertainment District takes advantage of natural land contours to set the stage for striking architectural design.
The benefit of the design is that it allows vehicles to drive directly onto the floor area for unloading of equipment to stage concerts and other special events, something that the current Sudbury Community Arena does not offer.
Building the arena/event centre into a natural depression on the site will reduce the need for rock blasting during construction.
