Introducing Arena Birmingham, Birmingham, UK

The National Indoor Arena opened in Birmingham in 1991. From April 2020 now called Utilita Arena Birmingham.


The National Indoor Arena was built in 1991. Also known as The NIA Birmingham (from the 4th October 1991 until 1st December 2014). The building was redeveloped in 2013 and 2014 and reopened at the end of that year as the Barclaycard Arena (2nd December 2014 until 31st August 2017). A name it held until 2017, when it simply became known as Arena Birmingham (1st September 2017 until 14th April 2020). It is now called the Utilita Arena Birmingham. Located close to King Edwards Road in Birmingham near Old Turn Junction, where the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal meets the Birmingham Canal Navigations Mainline. It is owned by the NEC Group.
