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.

They should have called it The Marina Arena.

If he’s on about the one by Admiral it’s student apartments.
Yep the ones next to the Technium buildings are student accommodations.
That would have been a prime place for a hotel as it is so close to the city centre/marina. I just hope they do not go the same way as Cardiff's student accommodation and left empty.

Never understood that. We have roads and a train station.

Yeah but it’s usually pointless then coming past Cardiff when they’ve got better arenas/venues.

I'm hoping we'll get the artists that are to small for the Motorpoint but to big for the Uni here.

It's going to be run and operated by Ambassador Theatre Group, who run venues in the UK, Germany and America. You can expect stage shows, tribute bands, gaming events and comedians. Probably Darts too. https://www.atg.co.uk/venues

I'm sure they did their research on which acts/bands would be likely to come before they went ahead with ploughing money into it.

Right?

I don't think bands will be the main focus, and unless you like ABBA tribute shows you'll be disappointed. Esports is growing and is huge in quite a few places. It could be a very good venue for things like that as well as conventions like ComiCon. Give me those over second rate bands any day. :D
