Built in 1960, the WiZink Center – originally named Palacio de Deportes de la Comunidad de Madrid – is an indoor sporting arena located in the Spanish capital of Madrid. The former building was destroyed by a fire in 2001, which led to a new, modern venue, designed by architects, Enrique Hermoso and Paloma Huidobro, which was built between 2002 and 2005.

Since then, WiZink Arena has been able to offer a variable capacity depending on the sport or event, with 10,000 – with 200-metre track and six lanes – for athletics, 14,000 for handball, 15,000 for basketball games and, finally, 15,500, with a standing public ramp, for concerts.
