Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park: The Copper Box Arena


The Copper Box was the first venue in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to reopen to the public.

You can have a workout in the gym, take part in activities in the state-of-the-art sports hall, or just enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat in the cafe.

The Copper Box hosted the Handball, Modern Pentathlon Fencing and Paralympic Goalball during the London 2012 Games.

Now home to the London Lions basketball team, it is a major venue for everything from premiership basketball to pop concerts.

Quite possibly the worst concert venue that I've every been to. Attended the Dizzee Rascal show last night. They had somewhere around 15 or so bar cashiers in the arena which is necessary for the size of the venue. However, only two cashiers accepted card payments. This made it nearly impossible to get a drink without queing for an hour. On top of that, their card network crashed. Lastly, they...more

I went there to see the basketball game between the London Lions and the Bristol Flyers in the BBL Championship. It was very one-sided with most of the fans supporting the London Lions on their home ground.

Although, it really was not as exciting as the Olympic basketball games in the Basketball Arena or even the wheelchair basketball, but this was a much smaller scale arena, and nice to be...more

The kids had tons of exercise and...more

Works for it suppose.

Entering and getting out of the Box was not a hazzle and went quick and convenient. As it should.

This venue is one of the smallest, and only have space for 7.000 people. In other words: An intimate experience. I can understand why the rest of the handball matches will be played in the Basketball Arena.

I was lucky enough to see my own country, Norway, play the quarter...more
