Overview
More
Derby Arena is located on Derby’s Pride Park next to the iPro Stadium. Development of the £27.5 million Arena heralds the most exciting and important changes to leisure facilities in Derby in the last 40 years, as part of Derby City Council's Leisure Strategy. The new arena is primarily a space for sports and physical activity; however it also serves as a venue to host cultural events, exhibitions, product launches and conferences, and as such, is able to hold up to 5000 people.
