EAGLES COMMUNITY ARENA OPENING DECEMBER 2018

Proposed Eagles Community Arena site

FUNDED BY

The Eagles Community Arena will be a brand new, purpose-built community sports arena as the new multi-million pound home for the Eagles Community Foundation (ECF).

The state-of-the-art venue will house our award winning North East charity and host the region’s most successful sports team – our Esh Group Eagles Newcastle.

It is anticipated that more than 11,000 people will be engaged in sport during the facility’s first year. And more than 1,000 disabled users will be encouraged to play sport annually at the arena – based at Riverside Dene in Elswick, reflecting the ECF’s commitment to deliver recreation and education opportunities to the wider community. The new venue will provide a home for the ECF and enable it to develop its current player pathway structure under one roof whilst also providing educational routes and workforce development.

The move to the 2,800-seater venue will allow the most successful franchise in British basketball history to pursue its long-term dream of competing on the European stage.

Breaking ground on the new project brings to fruition a long-term partnership between ECF and Newcastle City Council, the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (NELEP), Sport England and Newcastle College.

Construction experts at Esh Group are building the arena for the Eagles Community Foundation.
