The London 2012 Basketball Arena is the first to play host to competition, with the London International Basketball Invitational, at the Olympic Park as part of the London Prepares series.
The Arena is only a temporary structure and is the fourth to be completed by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) in the Olympic Park this year.
The venue located inside Olympic Park has a maximum capacity of 12000. However, during this test event only 3000 spectators per day will be allowed in due to safety reasons.
