The Barclaycard Arena venue photo

Following its two-year £26 million refurbishment, The NIA relaunched in December 2014 under a brand new name - The Barclaycard Arena - with an improved pre, during and post show experience.

Capacity has been increased to 15,800 using both permanent seating and temporary seating, so there’s even more chances for you to see your favourite artists and events, plus brand new comfier seats have been installed throughout the arena! The concourse is more spacious, and home to the new pre-show offering of food, drink and entertainment. With everything from fish and chips to ice cream, food and drink outlets have been increased and improved. Plus two brand new restaurants have been added for when you fancy treating yourself to that VIP hospitality upgrade.

A spectacular glass façade has been installed across the front of the venue, top to bottom, completely changing the view from both from the inside and out, and the iconic Sky Needles, standing 46m high, will light up the Birmingham skyline at night.

Situated in the centre of Birmingham, the NIA was purpose build to accommodate major sporting events and is recognised as one of Europe's leading indoor sporting arenas hosting everything from Athletics and gymnastics to, netball, basketball, hockey, boxing, darts, snooker and football. Sport is just the beginning, the Arena has been transformed to accommodate comedy, opera and ice events as well as being recognised as one of the UK's must play arenas for all major touring artists.

This venue has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
