The Home of the Sheffield Steelers since 1991
The building was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen on 30th May 1991. The £34 million building was constructed in time to host the World Student Games, hosting concerts, ice shows, theatre style shows, ice hockey, sport, exhibitions and conferences.
During the summer of 2013 the Sheffield Arena underwent a multi-million pound investment with many improvements such as a new roof and the replacement of all 12,500 seats
For the Steelers the refurbishment will also mean brand new scratch resistant plexiglass ensuring an enhanced viewing spectacle for our supporters.
