The venue for the Boxing events will be the Royal Hall in the Villa Marina. This magnificent entertainments centre has been fully refurbished over the last decade and will provide one of the most impressive venues for the Games.
The Royal Hall has permanent seating for 1,000 spectators and additional temporary seating will be installed around the main boxing ring. Two practice rings will also be available within the centre.
The Villa Marina will be the central hub of the Games Village on Douglas Promenade and will also accommodate social areas for the competitors, including a cinema (which will also be the venue for the Chef de Mission meetings) and the adjoining gardens will be the venue for the Closing Ceremony. The promenade directly in front of the Villa Marina will be the start/finish area for the Time Trial and Criterium Cycling events.
