The Madrid Arena, inaugurated in 2002, is a multifunctional stadium located in the city of Madrid, the capital of Spain, and has been a replacement for the old Rocodrome in order to be part of a hypothetical Olympic Games in 2012, 2016 and 2020. The Madrid-Arena is located just a few minutes from the city centre and thanks to its ability to offer both seated and standing seating, the indoor arena can be used for sporting events, shows and trade fairs.
The Madrid Arena has its own car park reserved especially for people with disabilities, but there are several street parking options in the vicinity of the Madrid Arena. But be careful, parking badly can lead to a fine or even your car being towed away.
That's why we recommend you check the city's parking restrictions, as parking on the street is limited at certain times in some areas of the city, as well as always taking into account the measures that are established when the anti-pollution protocol is activated and the zones set that limit access to private vehicles.
To avoid problems with parking in the street, one option is to park your car in one of the car parks associated with Parkimeter and then use public transport.

The Madrid Arena has a maximum capacity of 10,248 visitors during basketball but, for example, a maximum of 13,000 visitors during boxing events. The main purpose of this indoor arena is to host basketball matches during, for example, the Olympic Games.
The municipality of Madrid is the owner of the indoor arena. During its events, the arena can be very crowded and parking nearby can be difficult, so as mentioned before, booking a parking space for the day of your visit may be your best option to just get there and enjoy the event without a hitch.
