- Scotland's National Arena
Scotland's National Arena, also known as the National Entertainments Arena, is a planned indoor arena in
Glasgow, Scotland. It is planned for completion in 2009 at an estimated cost of £62 million. It has been designed by architects " Foster and Partners". The building will be used for concerts and other entertainment events and will seat 12,500. The arena will also be used for sporting events for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The main reason for the building is due to the current lack of a high capacity events space in Glasgow. Scotland's biggest indoor events space is currently Hall 4 in the SECC which can hold 12,500. However, due to this also being used for exhibitions, the layout of the required seating when needed, lost the SECC 70 days every year. It is hoped that this building will provide an alternative to Hall 4.
The arena has the potential to inject an additional £131 million per annum into the local economy and create 1,400 jobs. The current economic impact of the SECC is £336 million per annum with 1.5 million visitors a year. [http://www.clydewaterfront.com/secc_arena.aspx]
Like the Clyde Auditorium, the arena has been designed from the inside out. Visitors will enjoy sightlines from each of the 12,500 seats and the acoustics will be of the highest standard.
