StadiArena’s patented technology converts an outdoor stadium into an indoor arena in just 6 minutes, allowing stadium owners, developers and operators to create a true multi-use venue. Applicable to new builds and refurbishments, StadiArena is a cost effective, innovative solution that addresses the problems of legacy, revenue generation and under utilisation. This bespoke venue can then host a variety of events including indoor sports, exhibitions, conferences, banquets, weddings, televised screenings, community functions and many more.

The management team at StadiArena have over 60 years of experience in designing, managing and operating sporting venues and this has fostered a strong belief that in order to be financially viable, a venue must be truly multi-use. In October 2016, the world’s first StadiArena opened in Ahmedabad, Gujarat as a Public Private project approved by now Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he was then the Gujarat Chief Minister.

StadiArena not only brings increased commercial revenues to dormant stadiums, but it creates a venue that becomes an asset to the community providing facilities for cultural, social, educational, sporting and leisure events.

CommonwealthFirst will assist StadiArena in identifying new opportunities and partnering with other Commonwealth companies in enhancing and improving the unique services provided.
