The Copper Box Arena was originally supposed to have four indoor arenas at the Olympic Park, but a revised plan was designed in 2006 which reduced it to three.
On January 2014, the floor of the arena got terribly damaged during a mass fitness event due to which many events were switched elsewhere.
The Copper Box Arena is a multi-sports venue, situated in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London in U.K. The construction of the arena was completed in 2011. The chief architects who built this magnificent arena are MAKE architects, Populous, PTW Architects and ARUP. An estimated amount of £44 million was spent on its construction.
