Long Description:
Ballerup Super Arena, tidligere kaldet Siemens Arena, er en sportsarena beliggende i Ballerup og en del af Ballerup Idrætsby.

Til dagligt fungerer hallen som multiarena til træning for lokale foreninger. Cykelbanen er Team Danmark-elitesportscenter for landets bedste banecykelryttere. Året rundt afholdes der løbende stævner for både amatører og professionelle. VM i badminton, landskampe i basketball, regionals i Crossfit og VM i banecykling er blandt andet blevet afholdt her med stor succes.

Hallens samlede areal er 15.000 m² og har kapacitet på 9.200 til stående gæster.

Ballerup Super Arena blev indviet 28. december 2001. Den 2. januar 2003 kollapsede taget. Ingeniørfirmaet COWI konkluderede senere, at det var en beregningsfejl, der var skyld i kollapset og det nye tag blev efterfølgende forstærket af kabler.


Arenaen har tidligere dannet ramme om bl.a. til Københavns seksdagesløb og store koncerter med kunstnere som Rihanna, Back Street Boys og Thomas Helmvig.

I 2010/2011 fungerede Ballerup Super Arena som hjemmebane for håndboldklubben AG København. Desuden afholdtes der også Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, MGP og det københavnske 6-dages løb.

Arenaen ejes af Ballerup Kommune.
