New San Francisco arena is a proposed multi-use indoor arena in San Francisco, California. It would mainly be used for basketball, becoming the new home of the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors, who have called the Bay Area home since the 1960s, have played their home games in Oakland since 1971.

The plan for building a new arena was announced on May 22, 2012, by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. The new 18,000-seat arena was originally planned to be located on Pier 30-32 along the San Francisco Bay waterfront, situated between the San Francisco Ferry Building and AT&T Park. Locals criticized the site over traffic and environmental concern. On April 19, 2014, the Warriors abandoned plans for the pier site and purchased a site owned by Salesforce.com at the Mission Bay neighborhood in an undisclosed deal. The arena project will be financed privately. The team plans to have the arena ready for the 2018–19 NBA season.[1]
