Pallacanestro Cantù, one of the most successful teams in European basketball competitions, obtained unanimously the declaration of public interest from the City Council for their new arena project last week. An extraordinary result after two and a half years of intense work by Cantù Next, supported by Istituto per il Credito Sportivo (ICS) and specialist consultants The Stadium Consultancy.
The new two-tier arena will have a capacity of more than 5,200 seats for basketball with state-of-the-art hospitality and public welfare facilities. Through the use of retractable tiers it can be easily converted to other sports such as volleyball, tennis, ice hockey, and host any type of event, from concerts to conferences, from fairs to private parties.
Cantù Next S.p.A. is a company founded in August 2019 on the initiative of a group of local entrepreneurs, which works, together with Pallacanestro Cantù S.p.A., for the realization of the new Arena project. The Stadium Consultancy, in collaboration with ICS, assisted Cantù Next and their design team, with specialist knowledge in arena design and operations for the development of the preliminary and definitive design.
