UK Outside Broadcast company Arena Television has ceased trading after more than 30 years of operation.

Arena has facilitated major sports and live events over its lifetime.

Staff were reportedly informed of the news yesterday. Arena’s website and social accounts have now been shut down.

Earlier this year, Arena and dock10 successfully completed a live trial of a new virtual gallery solution with BBC Sport covering the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Arena was also the OB company behind ITV Sport’s Euros coverage earlier this year supporting the production from a base at Maidstone Studios.
