Copenhagen Arena will have a capacity of up to 15,000 seated and standing spectators for culture and music events. The arena will have a floor area of up to 35,000 square metres with large foyer areas and plenty of room for cafés, restaurants and bars, and lots of space for the audience. There will also be extensive service areas for performers, athletes and service functions. The design is an expression of a strong Scandinavian design tradition in which quality, function and design form a synthesis, which gives Copenhagen Arena a distinct Nordic identity. Building will be completed in 2016.
