For over 40 years arena has equipped the world’s leading swimmers and lovers of watersports with racing, training, and leisure swimwear and accessories built on a foundation of in-depth research, technical know-how, and an unyielding commitment to quality.

Arena has numerous technical partnerships with prominent aquatic organizations, most notably with the sport's world governing body, FINA.

The company's most recent collaborative agreement is with Team England for the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
