Newcastle Entertainment Centre hosts the very best local, national and international events in a market that is continually growing and very supportive.
It is located six minutes from the centre of Newcastle on the Newcastle Showground. The Newcastle Entertainment Centre services a population base in excess of one million patrons. From Coffs Harbour in the north, west to Armidale and Moree as well as the Central Coast of New South Wales. It is the premier regional venue with the sixth largest market in Australia.
The Entertainment Centre is renowned for being one of Australia's most flexible multi-purpose stadiums, able to accommodate sports events, various performances and expos. The Newcastle Show uses the Centre for various displays and the showbag area. The stadium has also played host to some of Kostya Tszyu's early fights as an Australian-based fighter.
The venue has a listed capacity of 4,658, but it can host anywhere between 2,000 to 6,500 for various events. The stadium is air-conditioned (installed as a requirement of the NBL when it moved to playing in the summer), equipped with top-grade lights, and also has scoreboards used for basketball and netball games.
