The M.E.N. Arena has attracted a huge number of customers since opening its doors in 1995, as it is the largest indoor arena in the country.

Arena was named "International Venue Of The Year" in 2001 by concert industry insiders in the 'Pollstar' awards, and was nominated in the same category in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. The M.E.N. Arena was also named "Busiest Arena Venue In The World", based on ticket sales for concerts in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 beating competition from other indoor arena's including New York's Madison Square Garden and London's Wembley Arena. The Arena has also been named the 'World's Busiest Arena' of the last 5 years (2001-2007) based solely on ticket sales for concerts, attracting five and a half million customers to concerts.

The upper tier of the arena is also extremely steep and the view from the rear blocks (207-210) is very poor, yet the tickets in these blocks are often priced at the same rate as those with a much better view.

The Manchester Evening News Arena, Manchester Storm (994 words)
The Manchester Evening News Arena, home of the Manchester Storm who hit the ice for the very first time in 1995/1996 and were immedeatly included in the then-new Superleague in 1996, seats 17.250 fans and doesn´t have to shy away from any comparisons to other top-venues across the continent or even across the Atlantic Ocean.
Due to the fact that the arena has been put right into downtown Manchester the constructors didn´t have a whole lot of real estate to work with, if you´re scared of heights I would strongly recommend tickets in the lower bowl as the construction of the arena itself is very (very very) steep.
The Manchester Evening News Arena is situated on the A56, 3 miles from junction 17 on the M62
