Coliseo Cubierto el Campín (English: Campín Covered Coliseum) is an indoor sporting arena located in Bogotá, Colombia. It was built in 1973. The capacity of the arena is 14,000 and is used mostly for basketball, tennis and concerts. The arena is the venue of many concerts in Bogotá, even though is criticized for lack of acoustic. The government is studying the possibility of demolishing the Coliseum[1] and make a new one with all the amenities so the Coliseum can be replaced, but many people say they should leave the coliseum just for tennis and basketball, in consequence the government planted the possibility of building a new indoor arena in other place of the city to replace the Campin arena.[2][3][4]
