Premium offerings at the stunning new Co-op Live arena in Manchester are selling out fast, according to the venue.

With just over a month to go until the arena opens its doors to up to 23,500 fans per show, premium clients continue to be attracted to the UK’s newest and largest live entertainment arena’s VIP offerings.

Manchester Evening News said the venue’s 28 stunning private suites have been snapped up by established local companies such as Betfred, Boodles, Bruntwood, Together Money and Vita Group.

In addition, 250 memberships for Co-op Live’s two Gallery Suites and 100 memberships for the exclusive The Bentley Record Room have also sold out.

The success of the venue’s premium spaces comes as the Oak View Group (OVG) operated Co-op Live continues to announce a world-class opening season with more than 30 artists spanning over 60 shows in just the first three months, with more to be revealed.

The 23,500-capacity Co-op Live is the United Kingdom’s first purpose-built music arena and is currently under construction in Manchester, England (UK). Due to open in April 2024, it is planned to have the largest maximum capacity of any indoor arena in the U.K., greater than the existing 21,000-capacity AO Arena Manchester.

Sam Piccione III, President of Sales, OVG International – the joint-venture partner behind Co-op Live, said: “In our opinion, there will be no better place to experience live entertainment in Greater Manchester, the UK and beyond, than Co-op Live.

“We’ve invested a lot of research in our premium offering to create a unique experience for all members, catering to all tastes across a huge range of live events. I can’t wait for April 23 to see so many happy people enjoying Co-op Live’s suites, lounges and clubs.”

A unique experience

With many of Co-op Live’s premium spaces now sold out, the remaining membership options include the AMP Club and the recently revealed, decadent Decibel Club.

Each has been designed to cater for individual preferences, retaining quality across a range of styles and atmospheres, complete with unique private lounges and premium viewing seats.

Co-op Live is preparing to open the UK’s largest live entertainment arena, boasting a modern design to deliver an astounding experience to music, comedy and sports fans.

Becci Thomson, Head of Premium Sales for Co-op Live, added: “It is very humbling to have sold out of the 28 suites, The Bentley Record Room and both Gallery Suites after so many positive meetings with local business and music fans over the past two years.

“The team has done an amazing job to be at this point in the sales process 60 days out from opening and I want to thank all our members who have embraced the vision of Co-op Live.

“Now with limited Decibel Club and AMP Club memberships left, we look forward to rounding out what will be the most powerful and fun network of members any live music venue has ever assembled in one place.”
