The Sportpaleis in Antwerp, Belgium, is a multi-functional entertainment hall at which different activities are organised, such as concerts, sports meetings, parties and conventions. Originally, the building was meant for sports matches, but these no longer take place there regularly, though the Proximus Diamond Games are an exception to this. The Sportpaleis was opened in 1933 and has a capacity of 21,000.
On march 10th 2007, the new Lotto Arena was opened. This new hall is right next to the Sportpaleis, and can hold 8050 people. The Lotto Arena is more suited for sports, but can also house concerts or shows.
