Co-op Live, Manchester’s upcoming, £365m indoor arena which includes Harry Styles among its backers, has announced a new opening date.

The project which is being built next door to Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium, will now open its doors to fans in April 2024. The venue, which will be the world’s largest indoor arena with a capacity of 23,500 when complete, was originally scheduled to open in December this year.

The arena is being built by BAM Construct UK and is a joint venture between Oak View Group (OVG) and City Football Group, alongside Harry Styles who has privately invested in the development. It claims to be the the UK’s only “music-first arena,” and has taken design tips from performers including Bruce Springsteen and minority investor Styles.

A spokesperson for the Co-Op Live Arena said: “It’s a huge kudos to BAM, and the dozens of local subcontractors working on the project, that we are well within our original timeframe and on-budget given the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic, supply chain shortages, and an energy crisis. We’re proud to be on the home stretch to delivering Co-op Live and we can’t wait to invite fans in to experience the biggest and most sustainable arena in the UK.”

The completed arena will feature 32 bars, restaurants and lounges offering a locally sourced and sustainable food and drink and aims to be net carbon neutral by 2038, with almost 9,000 sqm of solar panels and plans in place to produce no food waste, use no single use plastic on site, send no waste to landfill and use all the rainwater it collects.
