OVG JOINS FORCES WITH CO-OP TO DEVELOP THE UK’S BIGGEST AND MOST EXCITING NEW ARENA IN MANCHESTER
We’re delighted to announce a 15-year partnership with the Co-op on the development of one of the most sustainable and socially responsible arenas in Europe.
Our exciting proposals deliver a £350million private investment, thousands of jobs, and help continue the regeneration of the Eastlands area, with a projected boost to the local economy of £1.5bn over the next 20 years.
The partnership, which will see the arena named Co-op Live, will generate around £1m in donations to good causes, distributed via the Co-op Foundation. The arena will support Manchester’s net zero carbon agenda and help to tackle food poverty via a zero-food waste initiative.
Once open, Co-op will offer its members a host of exclusive benefits, including access to pre-sale tickets, discounts on food and beverage, and the chance to win free tickets and exclusive, money can’t buy, backstage VIP experiences.
