The Filoil Flying V Arena, formerly The Arena in San Juan, also known as the Entertainment and Recreational Arena of the People (initials taken after former mayor and president Joseph Estrada's nickname 'Erap'), is an indoor sporting arena located in Bonny Serrano Avenue, Corazon de Jesus, San Juan, Metro Manila, Philippines.

The Arena plays host to the basketball games of the Philippine Basketball League, the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the University Athletic Association of the Philippines since 2009, the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup, and the Philippine Collegiate Championship, as well as the volleyball games of the Shakey's V-League. It is also one of the secondary home court of the Philippine Patriots in the ASEAN Basketball League.

Filoil Flying V entered in a naming rights agreement with the San Juan City government, changing the arena's name into "Filoil Flying V Arena".[1] It is the first such agreement since the San Andres Gym in Malate, Manila lent naming rights to FedEx's sister company Mail And More in 2000. Currently, it is one of two sporting venues in the Philippines named after a company besides, the other being the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
