The former Roxy Disco nightclub was transformed into the "Carling Academy Sheffield" in April 2008, with Reverend and the Makers playing on the opening night.
On 6 November 2008, it was announced that Telefónica Europe (owners of the O2 Network in the UK) had become the new sponsor of all Academy venues, in a deal with music promotor Live Nation.
So it found its new name, Now a prominent place in Sheffield’s night life, no regular club nights at present but holds occasional destination nights, such as Gatecrasher, Valve Soundsystem, Wax:On and Metropolis, Detonate, Toddla T Sound.
