OVO Arena Wembley is one of the UK’s most legendary concert and events venues. With a rich history that goes back to its days as the Empire Pool and Sports Arena, the building has played host to numerous events including the 1948 and 2012 Olympics and for over 60 years, the 12,500 capacity Arena has seen some of the biggest names in music walk through its doors from Queen, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles to David Bowie, Cher, Michael Jackson, Madonna and ABBA.
Hosting over 100 shows a year, the venue welcomes around 1million fans every year.
Despite being synonymous with live music, OVO Arena Wembley has cemented its status as a sporting venue to rival its neighbouring Stadium. Adding to a glowing reputation for ice shows, the venue regularly hosts Boxing and MMA events and has hosted WWE Wrestling, Snooker Finals, Premier League Darts, Indoor Hockey Finals, the International Strongman Championships and the World Badminton Championships in recent years - not to mention the scores of family and comedy shows the Arena has to offer.
As well as delivering world-class live entertainment, OVO Arena Wembley is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its operations and events.
Working collaboratively with title partner OVO Energy and other partners, the venue has and will continue to identify opportunities to help make OVO Arena Wembley more sustainable, delivering lower-impact events that are a headline act of their own.
