The height of arena is over 27 meters and the total area exceeds 21 thousand square meters. The construction schedule for Cido Arena was especially tight – it was started in May 2007 and completed in October 2008. The team of qualified specialists from Panevezio statybos trestas AB realized all tasks set to it – the arena was built on time and all necessary equipment was installed and is operating properly. The most impressive item in the new arena is the 250-meter-long cycle track meeting the Olympic standards and having category I. It was designed by the German company SportBau, which had already installed 121 tracks in various countries worldwide. The design of the track in Panevezys was addressed by the manager of the company himself, the architect Ralph Schuermann, whose last project was the cycle track built for the Olympic Games in Peking. In the new Cido Arena about 5.6 thousand spectators can watch basketball games, up to 7 thousand can be present at the concerts and other entertaining events, and 3.1 thousand spectators are welcome to the cycle races. There is a parking space for 700 cars by the arena.
