Having been a few times with the Sharks, it’s wooden bench seating with some bits taped off for season ticket holders. Food and drink was from a burger van outside although there were vending machines inside. Merchandise was on sale in the main hall. Can’t remember any entertainment or alcohol. The Trafford Centre is just the other side of the motorway. Don’t know about public transport but there is ample car parking on site.
I still need details for the venue guide for Leicester and Manchester.

2400 for basketball Not sure on ticket price for away fans Away fans sit low down behind their team bench in a designated area Hot dogs, burgers, chips, sweets etc all on sale Riders Merchandise and general basketball stuff on sale in the Arena (there is also a merchandise store in a building not far from the entrance to the Arena) Programmes are also on sale There is also a 50/50 cash prize draw each game Riders have cheerleaders and fan interaction games involving the kids normally. Plus random entertainment at some games. You can normally buy alcohol and soft drinks from two bars either side of the court at the far end of the arena There are a couple of very good Indian restaurants nearby but not much else close by Can't help on public transport other than to say the train station is probably a 30 minute walk away The arena is in amongst a small industrial estate with lots of FOC parking in and around. There is a also a steward at the entrance to the arena parking who will direct fans where to park if there is room in the Arena car park itself

Seats @ Riders are all tip-up and upholstered - very comfortable with loads of leg room. No poor seats in the arena from a viewing perspective. Thank God we don't have the bleachers any more as we had to endure at Loughborough. My tip for away fans is to arrive early (approx an hour before the game starts) if you want to bring your car to the game.
