The Forbes Arena is a 6,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. It is home to the Morehouse College Maroon Tigers basketball team. It also hosted basketball preliminaries during the 1996 Summer Olympics and was the home arena to the Atlanta Glory. It was opened in 1996 at a cost of $8 million. It sits adjacent to the college's old gym, Archer Hall, which sits 1,000. For this feature, Morehouse College hosts high school basketball tournaments, playoffs, and all-star games that utilize both buildings.

The arena was named after Franklin Forbes, an athletic director at Morehouse College and the school's first basketball coach.
