History and use

The arena was built from the late 1980s to 1991 at a cost of 44 million Australian dollars on an area of 28,900 square metres. The complex, consisting of a main hall and a secondary theatre, was opened on 20 July 1991. The Government of South Australia owns the property and contracts the Entertainments Corporation of Adelaide to operate and maintain the arena. The hall holds around 11,300 spectators and is mainly used for sporting events in the disciplines of netball, basketball and wrestling. Concerts are also held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. Internationally successful artists such as Eric Clapton, Miley Cyrus and Kylie Minogue have performed here.
