As of Monday 3 December, the Genting Arena will officially be renamed to Resorts World Arena, bringing us closer to our mates over the road at Resorts World Birmingham! We're still the same great venue that you guys love, just a different name! Here’s everything you need to know.


We’ve had a great run as the Genting Arena bringing the likes of Adele, Take That, Kylie, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Paul Weller and Harry Styles to Birmingham – but now, get ready for a new era as Resorts World Arena…and you can expect more of the same when it comes to huge names!

As we mentioned above, we’re still the same great venue and we’ll continue to bring you the biggest and hottest live events, it’s just we’ve just got a snazzy new name!

When will things start changing?

Right, the changeover won’t officially happen until 3rd December, so your tickets (from The Ticket Factory or any other STAR accredited retailer) and confirmation details for any upcoming events will still say ‘Genting Arena’. This goes for things such as pre-paid parking - confirmation documents that say ‘Genting Arena’ will also remain valid.  

If you do have any ticketing concerns, just drop the agent you used to buy your tickets a nudge and they’ll be able to answer any of your queries.

What will change?

You’ll notice over the coming months that we’ll be donning a brand new Resorts World Arena sign outside of the venue, as well as some tweaks inside too…but as for the venue itself, we’re not moving anywhere, we’ll still be a stone’s throw away from our buddies Resorts World. Also, from December, look out for changes to our website and social channels too!

Do you need to do anything differently?

In short, no! The only thing we’ll need from you guys is to tell all your mates that you’re going to RESORTS WORLD ARENA the next time you’re visiting us. Just remember, if you do have any concerns about the changes to the venue or anything regarding your tickets, just give either us a nudge on Facebook or Twitter or speak directly with the ticket agent you used to purchase you tickets.

For now, we’ll enjoy our last few months as Genting Arena and prepare for a new adventure as Resorts World Arena, Birmingham!
