Palace of Sports or Sports Palace (Russian: Дворец спорта) is the name of comprehensive indoors sports venues introduced in the Soviet Union (compare with Palace of Culture) and still used in a number of post-Soviet states. Many of them had standard architectural design. Some of them were renamed, e.g., into Palace of Concerts and Sports.

The term is also used in other countries. For example, in Hispanophone countries, the term is Palacio de los Deportes.
