The stadium and arena of the Tissot Arena serve as replacements of the Gurzelen football stadium and the Biel ice hockey arena. The football stadium part of the Tissot Arena is in the south-west side of the building complex and the ice rinks in the north-east. The watch manufacturer Tissot, a member of The Swatch Group that has a head office in Biel/Bienne, obtained naming rights of the arena for at least ten years.
The football stadium has a capacity of 5,200 and it is extendable to 10,000 if needed. The ice hockey arena accommodates 6,521 spectators. Part of the electricity for the arena complex is produced by the 8,100 solar panels installed on the roofs of the Arena.
