HOK and WSP were appointed as part of the design team, with support from Pascall+Watson in early 2017. HOK also designed the adjacent arena retail and dining destination along the project’s boardwalk.

As the first multi-purpose venue in Abu Dhabi, the arena is scheduled for completion by the end of 2019.

Yas Arena can be used year-round for a variety of sport and entertainment events within a temperature controlled environment.
