Yes of course you can use the sports_centre differently, you can have a concert, you
can have a flea market when there is no ice in the rink, put a refugee tent on the
soccer ground, and you could rent the aquatics centre for a romantic wedding around the
pool, without jumping in.

Still the main purpose is a sports_centre :-)

Yes we are in sync at this point, it is comparable to a former church building now used for concerts or climbing.
