Description:
Motorpoint Arena Sheffield (originally Sheffield Arena and formally Hallam FM Arena) is an arena in Sheffield, England. It is situated near Rotherham, Sheffield City Centre, Attercliffe, Meadowhall and the Centertainment and is the premier concert venue for Yorkshire.

The arena opened as Sheffield Arena and was renamed Hallam FM Arena, but returned to its original name as of 1 November 2007. On 9 August 2010, Sheffield Arena was officially renamed Motorpoint Arena Sheffield, after the Derby based car sales company invested £1 million to rename the venue.

It is well known for hosting big name concerts and sporting events.

Construction and opening

Constructed at a cost of £34 million, it was opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 30 May 1991.

The first concert took place that evening, Paul Simon playing as part of his "Born At The Right Time" tour. The Arena then took on the role of Gymnastics Hall for the 1991 World Student Games which were held in the city and which prompted the investment in, and development of, both the arena and nearby Don Valley Stadium.

Around 7 million people have attended events at the arena since it opened. It has a maximum capacity of 13,500.
