Venue information

About Motorpoint Arena
The building was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen on 30th May 1991.
The £34 million building was constructed in time to host the World Student Games, hosting concerts, ice shows, theatre style shows, ice hockey, sport, exhibitions and conferences.
The building is home to the Steelers ice hockey team and hosts around 30 ice hockey games a season
The building’s longest running show to date was Les Miserables at 35 performances over a four-week period in May/June 1999. It was the first time the production had ever been staged in an Arena, with the building undergoing a major transformation over five days to create an intimate 3000 seater, theatre-style setting, starting with the removal of the building’s 8.3 tonne electronic scoreboard for the first time since the Arena opened in 1991. Over 4000 square metres of drapes and 3000 square metres of carpet were used to create an intimate auditorium using a small section of the Arena’s horseshoe seating.
Riverdance previously held the record for longest running show, performing to around 55,000 patrons over 3 weeks in 1997.
For 12 years Motorpoint Arena has hosted indoor International Supercross, and now Endurocross every year, which involves converting the Arena by over 100 truckloads dumping 2000 tons of soil on to the ice floor to create a six-lane dirt track.
The building’s versatile indoor multi-purpose auditorium can easily accommodate audiences from theatre-style shows of 3,500 up to centre stage productions hosting audiences of 13,000. In June 2007 the Arena hosted the IIFA Awards Ceremony. The show often described as the Bollywood Oscars was seen by 500 million people in over 110 different countries.
The Arena is operated by Sheffield International Venues (SIV), one of the largest sport, leisure and entertainment companies in the North of England.

Good venue no real queues to complain about .Getting out of car park was awful but that is expected . Food is a bit pricey-£2·00 for a bottle of water!!!
Russell Howard (06/03/14) - EXCELLENT COMEDY NIGHT :)
Went with my husband -we have seen Russell on the TV and we were not disappointed. It was hilarious from start to finish. The jokes about his family were great and we were in tears for a lot of the show. I will definitely be going to the next one. Highly recommend!!
