Om Royal Arena
Royal Arena is an upcoming multi-use indoor arena in Ørestad Syd, a new development in the city of Copenhagen, Denmark. The ground is expected to be broken for construction mid-2013 with the arena to open in the autumn 2016. It will have a capacity of 12,500 for sporting events and up to 15,000 (either sitting or standing) for concerts.The project was presented at a press conference at Bella Sky Hotel on 23 September 2011.The design of the arena was presented on 7 June 2012. The winning design team consists of 3XN, HKS, Inc., Arup, ME Engineers and Planit. The arena will have a distinctly Nordic design.The arena will be one of two arenas (the other being Jyske Bank Boxen) to host the 2018 IIHF World Copenhagen, Parken Stadium, which is primary a football stadium, is the largest indoor arena, with a seating capacity of 38,065. There is a lack of indoor areas with a capacity of 10,000–20,000 in the region. The last time Denmark hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014, the city used the B&W Hallerne, which is a former industrial complex, and became too expansive. For most international sporting events, Brøndby Hall and Ballerup Super Arena are not big enough, while Parken Stadium is too big.
