The arena has a retractable roof made up of two enormous plates that can be opened and closed within twenty minutes. This allows for events to be held in a pleasant climate all year round. The arena is thus suited for all types of playing fields, such as grass, clay, gravel, ice or water - no matter the season. The stadium building forms part of a major new urban area, including housing, offices, commercial spaces and sports facilities.
