Well, HSBC are obviously happy to have two arenas with this name. What's your problem with it?

It won't be called that during the Games though.

But that´s the name. HSBC Arena, for both venues

For the first time, all the gymnastics events will be contested in one single venue instead of having Artistic and Rhythmic Gymnastics at separate venues in previous Summer Olympics. Rhythmic Gymnastics should have been popular in Brazil.

The Rio Olympic Arena has hosted two UFC events: UFC 134 on August 27, 2011 and UFC 142 on January 14, 2012.

I don't know whether the situation is still the same, but years ago there were two "American Airlines Arena" in the US and both were NBA teams home (I think Dallas and Miami)

I wish there could be an indoor arena like this in Sao Paulo as well. What a shame.

it's very cool indoor arena, but it deserves a bigger videoboard ... the current is very small...

Awful name with such a discredited company as HSBC.
This is like a venue being named the ENRON stadium.
