Head of SIVLive Dom Stokes said since the Arena opened in 1991 it has welcomed more than 16 million people through its doors, bringing in excess of £500 million to the local economy.
He said of the past year: "We set out to put the FlyDSA Arena front and centre in the minds of our customers, clients, partners, event promoters and organisers.
"This venue's history and heritage in delivering major sensational spectacles for Sheffield must be celebrated. And we continue to do so day after day. Over the past couple of years we have hosted nearly 75% of the biggest acts and productions that have toured the UK at the venue.
"Our relationship with the UK's most successful ice hockey club goes from strength to strength and together we will deliver success on and off the ice together. Next year the phenomenal line-up of top-flight events just keep on coming and I have set the ambition of getting a million people through our doors."
Kate Stow, DSA marketing and corporate affairs director, said: “We are extremely proud of our association with FlyDSA Arena and together we have had a lot to celebrate in our first year of holding the naming rights. At DSA we’ve seen the announcement of several new destinations - Krakow, Budapest, Belfast and a new long-haul destination to Cancun in Mexico – whilst at the Arena many exciting high profile shows have gone on sale.
“We’ve won a number of awards for our easy, fast and friendly service including the accolade of the UK’s Best Airport as voted by consumer magazine Which?. A record number of passengers have chosen to fly through DSA in 2018 too and we are forecasting to grow to 1.45 million passengers in 2019. We now have 55 destinations on offer, many of which are low-cost, establishing DSA as a convenient choice for passengers travelling from Yorkshire and the rest of the North.
“We are proud to be associated with an organisation that so closely reflects our own aspirations; repeat visits, a growing customer base, a great customer experience and recognition for our exceptional customer service. Needless to say we are looking forward to an exciting year ahead in 2019.”
