The Dragão Caixa is an indoor arena located in Porto, Portugal, which houses the basketball, handball and roller hockey teams of FC Porto. It was inaugurated on 23 April 2009 and has a capacity of 2,179 spectators. The construction project was done in partnership with Portuguese state-owned bank Caixa Geral de Depósitos, which got the naming rights.
The arena was designed by Manuel Salgado, the architect of the Estádio do Dragão. It was projected to house the club's basketball, handball and roller hockey teams under the same roof, after playing in loaned arenas since 2001, when the previous ground, the Pavilhão Americo de Sá, was demolished ahead of the construction works for the Estádio do Dragão.
