We also advise setting up an account in advance on big on sales as this will save you time when booking as the system can be very busy at the time of an on sale. You can even enter & save your card details in advance to further speed up the booking process - you can then either select the pre-entered debit/credit card details then when you go back into your account or you can enter a new/different card. Just click on the following link to either access or edit your online Sheffield Arena Box Office account.
If you have previously booked online you will need to enter your username and password.

Our in person venue queuing policy is that on the day a show goes on sale we allow customers to queue up to purchase tickets in person from the Arena Box Office, but only on the day that the show goes on sale.
People queuing before this will be asked to return on the day that the show goes on sale. We will exercise our right not to serve anyone who refuses to comply with this policy.
This policy was introduced following incidents that have happened whilst customers queued outside the Arena to buy tickets. We owe a duty of care to anyone who decides to queue on our land and it was clear after investigations that we were not in a position to fulfill this obligation for customers who were often queuing for several days and some cases weeks at a time.
We were unable to provide staff to monitor the queue and ensure safety; the area isn't suitable for people camping out exposed to the elements; we often have events in the Arena that require clear entrance / exit through the area where the queues have formed; we have no services available such as toilet and wash facilities.
We are fully aware that for some fans queuing to buy tickets is part of the fan experience. We are not trying to prevent this, but simply place manageable parameters to enable customers to be able to purchase tickets safely.
