The Arena Nürnberger Versicherung (originally known as the Nuremberg Arena) is a multi-use indoor arena that is located in Nuremberg, Germany. It can host sports matches, including those of tennis, ice hockey, handball, and basketball, as well as musical concerts. It has a capacity of up to 9,400 people for sports,[1] and up to 11,000 people for concerts.[2]

History

The arena opened in 2001. On 22 April 2003, Irish vocal pop band Westlife held a concert for their Unbreakable Tour supporting their album Unbreakable - The Greatest Hits Vol. 1. In 2005, it was renamed Arena Nürnberger Versicherung to reflect its sponsorship by a local insurance firm. On 7 November 2009, David Haye won the WBA Heavyweight Championship, against Nikolai Valuev, at the arena, in his first attempt at the heavyweight title.

The arena is the home venue for the German Ice Hockey League club, Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers Nürnberg, and was also the home arena for the now defunct German League basketball club, Falke Nürnberg.

The German Basketball League club, Brose Bamberg, has also played EuroLeague home games at the arena in the 2005-06 EuroLeague season, against the Greek League club AEK Athens,[3][4] during the 2015-16 EuroLeague season against the Spanish League club Real Madrid,[5] and during the 2016-17 EuroLeague season against the Turkish Super League club Efes.[6] They also played a home game in the 2017-18 season, against FC Barcelona.[7]
