Pavilion opened on Saturday by Mariano Rajoy.

With a capacity for 10,000 spectators, it will host the basketball World Cup meetings.

The "Gran Canaria sand", the new sports and multipurpose Pavilion opened in Las Palmas on Saturday by the President of the Government, Mariano Rajoy, has counted in its construction with the outstanding participation of a commerce company: Industrias Metálicas Anro, company of Tomelloso which has employed 2,800 tons of steel structures of the deck and steps of the Pavilion in this great project for which it has manufactured, transported and assembled large lattices of 90 meters in length and 7 in height.


President Rajoy stressed at the opening ceremony that these extraordinary facilities, born to host the basketball World Cup, represent an investment which will generate wealth and create employment, since the selections of Lithuania, Angola, Korea of the South, Slovenia, Mexico, and Australia will play its World Cup qualifying matches here.


For ANRO, this great project that was selected, has been a very important challenge, since large parts, designed and manufactured at its facilities in Tomelloso (Ciudad Real), were transferred to Las Palmas to be here assembled, according to the requirements of the joint Venture awarded this multi-purpose Pavilion, which has a capacity of 10,000 seats and up to 12,000 people at non-sporting events.  This Youtube video shows the complexity of assembling the canopy cover.


The new Pavilion of Las Palmas, designed by architects llps, required an investment of 70 million euros and will debut on May 1 with the party that held the Gran Canaria Herbalife and FC Barcelona. From August 30 to September 4, the Pavilion will host qualifying matches in Group D of the cup of the world of Balocesto, who played selections from Lithuania, Angola, Korea of the South, Slovenia, Mexico, and Australia.
