The arena's seating capacity, for basketball, is up to 15,504 people. Works to increase the arena's seating capacity from 9,923 to 15,504 people began in March 2011, and finished in April 2012.
Originally designed (rather belatedly) as a cattle market in the mid 1970s, for a city that had already abandoned its links with agriculture and was modernizing at a great pace, it was soon turned into a sports arena, which opened in 1991.
The arena hosted the 1996 Saporta Cup Final, in which local Saski Baskonia won the title and also hosted the 2010 Eurocup Finals. It also hosted four times the final stage of the Copa del Rey of basketball in 2000, 2002, 2008 and 2013.
