It is built on the place of the former track cycling velodrome in Plovdiv and currently is the only indoor velodrome in Bulgaria and the largest one on the Balkans.[1]

Besides cycling events the arena can host additional 22 types of sports and can serve as concert's hall. The complex has also underground parking facility for 300 vehicles, a modern press centre, dressing rooms, coaching facilities, a sports-recreational centre, restaurants and a large commercial centre for a wide variety of sports merchandise and kit.
