The Copper Box Arena played host to a number of events during the London 2012 Games, most notably the fencing section of the modern pentathlon, and the Paralympic goalball and handball events.
Originally known as the Multi-use Arena or Handball Arena, the venue was renamed the Copper Box in January 2012, to better reflect the look of the building.
Part of the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic venues, was that they re-opened after the Games to be vibrant, well-used spaces for the local community.
Since opening to the public, the Copper Box Arena has had more than 1 million visitors and has staged high profile international and national sporting events, tournaments, shows, exhibitions, concerts and conferences, including BBC Sport Relief and Invictus Games. It is also home to the London Lions basketball team.
