Morningside Arena is a fantastic multipurpose community sport and events facility with seating capacity for up to 3,000 people. It stages regional, national, and international sports events and hosts entertainment events, conferences, and exhibitions. It is home to Leicester Riders Basketball Club and the nationally registered charity Leicester Riders Foundation. The arena runs on a not-for-profit basis. The hosting of these large events not only brings people to the city, but the revenue received enables substantial subsidies to be applied to fees for users of the arena from local deprived areas, or to provide community outreach facilities in those areas, to encourage people to take part in sport and recreational activities.

The new events hall will maximise the flexibility for the use of the arena, with a new external events plaza and additional internal and external basketball courts making the space even more attractive to organisations to host their events. This in turn will increase revenue and secure the sustainability of the arena and the ongoing viability of their community focused programmes, whilst bringing further employment to the local area and to benefit the wider community.
