Tonight the focus in the Copper Box arena will be on handball, but after the London 2012 Olympics it will become all about basketball.
The 6,000-capacity Copper Box arena is to become the new home of the Milton Keynes Lions British Basketball League club after the Olympic Games. The club will be renamed the London Lions. The move mirrors that of football club Wimbledon's move from London to Milton Keynes to become the MK Dons.
Tonight the Copper Box, which is also called the multi-use arena, will play host to the semi-finals of the women's handball competition.
But with the Olympics still ongoing and the new BBL season just over six weeks away, the Lions will not be able to move into the Copper Box until next year.
That move will come in time for the start of the 2013/14 BBL season.
The Copper Box will feature a flexible seating capacity and facilities for a wide range of community sports, competitions as well as cultural and business events.
It will become the third largest indoor arena in London and could attract around 400,000 visitors a year.
