  • Coca-Cola Arena is a stadium in City Walk, Al Wasl, Jumeirah District, Dubai.
  • The project was launched in Q4 2016.
  • The estimated handover date was Q4 2018 which has since been revised to 2019.
  • Construction began in Q4 2016 and was completed by June 2019.
  • The project was developed by Meraas Holding.
  • North 25 was the project manager.
  • The main building work was done by Kier.
  • Other companies involved with Coca-Cola Arena include AEG Ogden and Al Shafar General Contractors.
  • From Coca-Cola Arena it takes roughly eight minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 20 minutes to Palm Jumeirah, 19 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 24 minutes to The Walk JBR.
  • Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 17 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 46 minutes' drive. All durations are calculated by Google Maps and assume the fastest route in typical traffic conditions.
  • The Arena covers an area of half a million square feet and has a capacity of around 17,000, making it an ideal venue for large scale international music concerts, sporting events such as tennis, basketball, boxing, volleyball and ice hockey. It will also cater for exhibitions and conferences, festivals and gala dinners.

  • Coca-Cola Arena has 46 hospitality suites.

  • Coca-Cola Arena is the only all-purpose indoor air conditioned arena of its size in the entire region and has been designed to be able to host end-stage, central and half-stage concerts.

  • Its location at City Walk enhances the venue’s attraction; it is close enough to Dubai International Airport and the Dubai Metro, and is surrounded by a host of hospitality, dining, entertainment and shopping options.

  • The complex roof structure weighs 4,000 tonnes, equivalent to the weight of seven A380 aircraft, and is supported by two mega-trusses spanning the entire length of the venue. The construction and lifting of these trusses, each weighing 822 tons, required some of the world’s biggest cranes to lift them as a whole piece into place.

  • In total, 16,000 bolts were used to connect the 14 frames that make up each of the 120-metre mega-trusses, roughly the length of a football pitch, with more than 20 tonnes of paint needed to coat them. Over 110 tonnes of show and production equipment will be placed above the arena’s versatile viewing areas.

  • District cooling service provider Empower has connected 3,600 tonnes of chilled water to the Arena via tunnels under Sheikh Zayed Road.

  • Coca-Cola Arena, originally known as The Dubai Arena, is managed by AEG Ogden, an international venue management company linked to over 100 of the world’s top facilities such as The O2 in London, the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai and Qudos Bank Arena in Australia.
