Booking an arena

Booking an Arena


Leagues, groups, individuals – anyone can book time at a City arena. The rental terms and conditions apply to all. What varies are:

  • the number of dates you need
  • when your application is processed
  • when payment is due

We've organized the application process into three types of rental options. Select the one that best suits your needs. We’ll take you through the booking process – and variables – from there.​​​​​
