Swansea Arena

It does exactly what it says on the tin. If it's not about football then it belongs in here for discussion. Once again we ask that you respect your fellow posters.

And none of those have been used either.
Probably the best, as when the army set up llandarcy, they wanted to call the morgue the 'body store'.

Amazing at logistics, not so great on compassion.
The Army didn't set Llandarcy up, they would have looked after the logistics if it got up and running though.

Well my wife's boss was in charge from the nhs point of view, so whoever did it still wanted to call it a body store and couldn't understand the recommendation to call the wards after the local valleys as opposed to area 1, 2 etc.

It’ll be changed by the locals very quickly to CoprCabana.

I'm not one of those to complain about everything Swansea and am usually one of the people defending things, but Copr Bay? Really? I like that we're referencing the city's history, but that just looks daft to any non-Welsh speaker.
The name was dreamt up following the setting up of a focus group formed with everyone from artists to employees at Swansea Museum, Swansea BID (Business Improvement District), along with councillors, council officers and the project team including development manager RivingtonHark.
They could have solicited suggestions from Swansea schools for zero cost and I'm sure they would have come up with many better suggestions.

We'll have the Copr district a mile or so away from Copper Quarter - with each having a stadium. That seems a bit daft.

Seems a bit daft to me. Only going to confuse the fk out of visitors.

Is it Sancta Maria Hospital or is that on Langdon Road, could be something to do with the University campus.

Naming rights for arenas in other largely irrelevant cities are worth sig figure sums. Surely it is best to sell the naming rights and invest that money back into the city, instead of giving it a name solely to tick some boxes on "local history" as if the people of Swansea don't already know it.

Yep the ones next to the Technium buildings are student accommodations.
