The Motorpoint Arena in Attercliffe has been ranked the 11th most successful venue in the world.

It sold 518,000 tickets last year, earning a high place in Pollstar Magazine’s Worldwide Ticket Sales Top 200 Venue List. Top was the O2 in London followed by Manchester Arena.

General manager Rob O’Shea said: “This recognition showcases to the entertainment industry that Sheffield is a viable and successful market for entertainment.”

The accolade comes after a refurbishment of the 22-year-old Sheffield venue, which is is now facing competition from the Leeds Direct Arena.
