UPDATE INFO >

Qantas Credit Union Arena

Qantas Credit Union Arena, formerly the Sydney Entertainment Centre, is one of Australia’s busiest and most versatile indoor arenas. The Entertainment Centre was built by the NSW Government in 1983 to replace the old Sydney Stadium and is currently operated by AEG Ogden. The award-winning facility has achieved a worldwide reputation for its ability to host some of the biggest names in entertainment history and continues to set new standards in service and facilities.

Averaging an attendance of 1 million people each year, the Sydney Entertainment Centre is famous for its flexibility, providing seating capacities for an intimate setting of 500 people up to a maximum of almost 12,000. While the venue has primarily hosted concerts, it has also staged many sports events, including Basketball, Netball, Tennis, Boxing and Wrestling. The Centre’s location is one of convenience. Situated on the fringe of Chinatown, adjacent to Darling Harbour and a short walk to the CBD, the Centre truly captures the liveliness and colour that is Sydney.

NBL club Sydney Kings call the Entertainment Centre home and refer to it as the "Kingdome" for home games. The venue has a capacity of around 10,517 for Basketball.

The Entertainment Centre was due to be demolished in late 2013 however a last-minute naming rights agreement with Qantas Credit Union extended the life of the venue for another two years. The last event was held at the venue on 19th December 2015 with Elton John playing live. Demolition of the venue will commence in early January and is expected to take three months. The replacement facility is the new Sydney International Convention Centre – located nearby and expected to open in December 2016. The new venue will featuring three theatres, of 9000, 2500 and 1000 capacity, however it will be unable to host sporting events such as Basketball and Netball.
