Accor Arena (originally known as the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, 1984–2014, later Bercy Arena, 2014–2015 and AccorHotels Arena, 2015–2020), also known as Bercy in competitions where commercial names are prohibited, such as in the Olympic Games, is an indoor sports arena and concert hall located in the neighbourhood of Bercy, on the Boulevard de Bercy, in the 12th arrondissement of Paris, France. The closest Métro station is Bercy, which also serves the Finance Ministry across the aforementioned boulevard.

Designed by the architectural firm Andrault-Parat, Jean Prouvé and Aydin 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. As part of the 2014–2015 renovations efforts, the arena was renamed to Bercy Arena on 1 January 2015. It was again renamed to AccorHotels Arena in October 2015,[2] until it received its current name in June 2020.[3][4]
