Provincial arenas of the PBA since 2010.

A majority of elimination round games are held in the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Mall of Asia Arena at Pasay City (both at Metro Manila) is the alternative venue when the Smart Araneta Coliseum is unavailable.[1] Playoff games are exclusively held at venues in Metro Manila, mostly at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Provincial games are held on selected locations throughout the country, with most of the games held on a Saturday. Very rarely does a playoff game is held outside Metro Manila, if at all.

All-Star games, on the other hand, are currently rotated between Luzon and Visayas/Mindanao. Metro Manila last hosted the all-star game in 2016; Baguio and La Union jointly co-hosted the All-Star Weekend for 2007. Bacolod hosted the 2008 edition which ran from April 24–27, 2008.

Seven games had been held overseas: three at Dubai and one each at Jakarta, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Guam.
