The Sheffield Arena was opened by the Queen in 1991 and was initially used to host the World Student Games. Since then it has gone on to host many of the world's biggest music acts including U2, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Robbie Williams and Beyonce among others. This versatile arena offers a capacity ranging from 3,500 (for theatre-style shows) to 13,500 (for larger productions).
International Supercross and Endurocross events are also hosted at the Sheffield Arena, which involves turning the arena into a giant dirt track. The Sheffield Arena is currently home to the Sheffield Steelers ice hockey team, who play in the Elite Ice Hockey League.
