Coordinates: 51°23′30″N 0°03′30″W / 51.391564°N 0.058324°W / 51.391564; -0.058324 Arena tram stop is a light rail stop in the Woodside area of South Norwood in the London Borough of Croydon in the southern suburbs of London. The stop is located by the Croydon Sports Arena and serves the council estates of Longheath Gardens Estate and Tollgate Estate.

The tram stop is served by Tramlink routes:

The tram stop is located on a section of line which follows the trackbed of the former Woodside and South Croydon Railway, although there was no station at the location prior to the opening of Tramlink. The stop is at ground level on double track, with platforms on each side of the tracks. Immediately to the east of the station is a junction where route 2 diverges to the north along a section of route specially constructed for Tramlink, leaving route 1 to continue straight ahead along the former railway right of way. Just beyond this junction route 1 becomes single track for the rest of its journey to Elmers End.

The National Cycle Route 21 (the Waterlink Way) crosses the tram lines at Arena.
