The Manchester Regional Arena is a multipurpose stadium in Manchester, England, primarily used for athletics and association football. It was originally developed as the warm-up track for the 2002 Commonwealth Games held at the adjacent City of Manchester Stadium. It has hosted the AAA Championships and Paralympic World Cup, and was the reserve home ground of the Manchester City reserve team prior to moving to Ewen Fields in June 2010.

It is the home of the Manchester City Ladies' side.
