Wells Fargo Arena (formerly ASU Activity Center) is a 14,000-seat[3] multi-purpose arena located at 600 E Veterans Way in Tempe, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix.

Constructed in the spring of 1974 as the ASU Activity Center and at the cost of $8 million, it is the home of multiple Arizona State University athletic teams, to include men's basketball, women's basketball, women's volleyball, women's gymnastics, and men's wrestling. The facility also plays host to graduation ceremonies and a variety of concerts and shows. The building replaced Sun Devil Gym as the primary arena for the Sun Devils' basketball team.

Naming rights for the arena were purchased by Wells Fargo & Co. in 1997.

The arena hosted the first dates of U2's Joshua Tree Tour in March 1987, with the tour eventually concluding next door at Sun Devil Stadium in December of that year.

It hosted the 1990 Pacific-10 Conference men's basketball tournament. Previously, the Sun Devils played at Sun Devil Gym.

The arena has also hosted the 1st and 2nd rounds of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament in both 2015 and 2016.
