AccorHotels Arena (originally known as Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy and formerly known as Bercy Arena) is an indoor sports arena and concert hall, that is located on boulevard de Bercy, in the 12th arrondissement of Paris, France. The closest métro station is Bercy. Designed by the architectural firm Andrault-Parat, Prouvé and Guvan, the arena has a pyramidal shape, and walls covered with a sloping lawn. It has a seating capacity ranging from 7,000 to 20,300, depending on the event.

History[edit]

It has been used as the main venue for the Paris Masters ATP Tour tennis tournament, and for many sports events, such as: handball, basketball, boxing, gymnastics, track cycling, show jumping, and more. POPB hosted the European gymnastics championship in 2000, the 1991 and 1996[1] FIBA EuroLeague Final Fours, and the FIBA EuroBasket championship in 1999, among others. The POPB has also hosted WWE Raw, on 28 September 2008. It also hosted the 2009–10 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 to Bercy Arena on 1 January 2015. It was again renamed to AccorHotels Arena in October 2015.[2]
