You can’t beat Tasmania’s largest indoor arena for an amazing sporting event!
Hosting sporting events for over 20 years including basketball, boxing, powerlifting national championships, cross fit competitions, netball, rodeo, in-line hockey and motocross has taught us a thing or two about the business.
At the DEC you have access to unparalleled back-of-house versatility including super easy bump-in and floor access, plentiful storage space and on-site parking for 1,400 cars plus overflow. We have significant experience setting up our arena floor for sporting events so you know that whatever court, field or stage you need, we can handle it.
Capacity is King
A sell-out crowd is something to behold at the DEC. Large sporting events can seat up to 5,000 eager fans, or a more intimate space can be created depending on your needs. Multiple kiosks and bars keep your fans happy while the riverside location of the DEC makes for excellent pre and post game discussion. There are also multiple break out rooms and extensive outdoor space for warm-ups, photo opportunities and media events.
