Jane Sandanski Arena (Macedonian: "сала Јане Сандански") was an indoor sports arena located in the Aerodrom Municipality of Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, which is home ground to KK MZT Skopje from the 1980s. The arena has a capacity of 6,000.

On 18 November 2012, it was announced that the arena will be completely demolished, with a new arena called Sports Center Jane Sandanski planned to be built in its stead.[1] On 14 February 2013, MZT Skopje held their last training in Jane Sandanski, with more than a thousand fans attending. The following day the arena was officially closed and demolished.

It was rebuilt and reopened in August 2014, financed by the Russian businessman Sergey Samsonenko, built alongside the four-star hotel "Russia".
