Ballerup Super Arena is a multi-purpose arena, in Ballerup, Denmark. It has a capacity for concerts of 7,500. It is owned by Ballerup Municipality and managed by EventForce A/S. The arena is also a venue for many company events, conferences, team building events, trade fairs, company sports events and cycling events.

The arena was opened in 2001. In 2003, the roof collapsed, as a result of a miscalculation in design and the new roof was reinforced with cables.

It hosts Denmark's only indoor velodrome and is often used for six-day racing and UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics events. It was the host for the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in 2002 and 2010. The cycling track is a 250 metres (820 ft) track made of wood.

The arena hosted Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2011 on 26 February, the first time Copenhagen hosted the competition since 2002.[1]

It also hosted the 2014 BWF World Championships.
