Dunedin gets a new Sports Arena

After years in the planning and development, Dunedin's main indoor sports venue, the Edgar Centre, finally unveiled its multi-million dollar expansion.

The new Lion Arena features two modern wooden courts, with retractable seating able to house up to 3,000 fans. The Arena will be the new home of the Otago Nuggets Basketball team, and the Otago Rebels Netball team.

It'll hopefully attract more fans to come and watch the games, especially in the winter, with the new roof heaters (although it remains to be seen whether the Nuggets will have lost a little of their 'home advantage' with the loss of the 'freezer-dome' atmosphere?!)
