AccorHotels Arena, also known as Bercy Arena and formerly known as Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy (literally General Sports Palace of Paris-Bercy), is an indoor sports arena and concert hall located in Paris, France, in the neighborhood of Bercy. The building was designed by Andrault-Parat, a French architectural firm, together with Jean Prouvé and Aydin Guvan and built in 1984. The venue has a distinct pyramid shape with walls covered in sloping lawn. After more than 30 years named as Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, the arena was renamed to Bercy Arena in January of 2015 and, just 10 months later, it was renamed to AccorHotels Arena, allthough the name Bercy Arena is still used in competitions where commercial names are prohibited.

Since it's opening, the arena has been host to European Gymnastics Championships in 1991, 1996 and 2000, several FIBA EuroLeague Final Fours, the Masters Karting Paris Bercy star race between 1993 and 2001 and again in 2011, and the FIBA Eurobasket Championship in 1999. The arena has also been host to the 2017 and 2019 League of Legends World Championships. In 2020, the arena will host a NBA game between Milwaukee Bucks and Charlotte Hornets, in 2021 it is going to host some of the games of the FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2021 and is going to be one of the venues of the 2024 Summer Olympics.

The capacity of the arena ranges between 7,000 for smaller sports events and 20,300 for concerts.
