The Sheffield Arena is one of the country’s largest indoor entertainment venues, with a capacity of over 13,500. Therefore on the day of the event heavy and slow moving traffic can be expected on all approaches. The Arena recommends its customers to arrive early and where possible to use public transport – in particular the tram park and ride facilities as the Arena has its own supertram stop – where possible additional trams will be laid on after the concert to meet demand.
