The Odyssey Arena is to be renamed The SSE Arena Belfast, when it opens this September following a major summer refurbishment.
The £3million upgrade will see new seating, improved digital infrastructure and other key initiatives to enhance overall customer experience.
Each of the 9,000 seats inside the auditorium will be replaced, as well as the decking and flooring areas. A new Club Seat section will be introduced to allow for attractive vantage points, higher backed chairs and enhanced comfort. Investments in WiFi technology, Digital Screens and chip and pin payment services are also planned as part of the Odyssey Trust’s commitment to provide first class services to its patrons.
The ten year agreement for SSE Arena Belfast forms part of the refurbishment and the arena will join the UK-wide stable of SSE entertainment venues including the SSE Hydro in Glasgow and the SSE Arena, Wembley.
The Arena will reopen again for the Belfast Tattoo on 4th September 2015, followed the next weekend by the first home league game of the season for the Belfast Giants.
