The Marshall Arena (formerly Arena MK, also Milton Keynes Arena) is a multi-purpose arena in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England, located beside Stadium MK. The 3,420 square metres (36,800 sq ft) multi-use event space is positioned over three floors and anticipates music and sporting events, conferences, exhibitions and parties.[2]

History

The Arena was to be the home of the Milton Keynes Lions professional basketball team. However, the retail developments that would have provided enabling funding were deferred due to lack of financing, leaving the Lions without a home.[3] Following the conclusion of the 2011–12 season, the Lions could not secure a venue within Milton Keynes, resulting in a move south to the Copper Box.[4]

It officially opened on 8 February 2014 when it hosted the 2014 English National Badminton Championships.[2]

Name

In September 2018, Marshall Amplification announced an agreement with Arena MK to use the space for music events, rebranding it the Marshall Arena.[5]

Regular tournaments

Darts

The Arena has hosted the Professional Darts Corporation's Masters tournament since 2015.[citation needed]

Snooker

Marshall Arena was chosen as the venue for the 2020 Championship League snooker tournament taking place in June 2020 because of the convenience of its on-site facilities.[6] During the UK's coronavirus lockdown, it was important that the event was able take place behind closed doors with no need for players and officials to leave the venue for the duration of their involvement once they have arrived.[6] For similar reasons, the Arena is hosting the first 13 tournaments of the 2020–21 snooker season[7] as well as the qualifiers for the 2021 German Masters.
