AccorHotels Arena (originally known as Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy and formerly Bercy Arena) is an indoor sports arena and concert hall located on boulevard de Bercy in the 12th arrondissement of Paris, France. The closest métro station is Bercy.

History[edit]

Designed by the architectural firm Andrault-Parat, Prouvé and Guvan, it has a pyramidal shape and walls covered with sloping lawn. It is the main venue for the Paris Masters, ATP Tour tennis tournament and for many sports: handball, basketball, boxing, gymnastics, track cycling, show jumping and more. It has a seating capacity ranging from 7,000 to 20,300, depending on the event. POPB hosted the European gymnastics championship in 2000, the 1991 and 1996[1] FIBA European Championships Final Fours and the European Basketball Championship in 1999 among others. The POPB has also staged WWE Raw on September 28, 2008. It also hosted the 2010 Euroleague Final Four. It also hosted the Masters Karting Paris Bercy star race from 1993 to 2001, and again in 2011.

As part of the 2014–15 renovations efforts, the arena was renamed Bercy Arena on 1 January 2015. It was again renamed AccorHotels Arena in October 2015.[2]
