Megasport Sport Palace[2] (Russian: Дворец спорта "Мегаспорт" Translite Dvorets sporta Megasport, formerly, Khodynka Arena or Ice Sport Palace on the Khodynka Field), is a multi-purpose indoor arena that is located in Moscow, Russia. The arena is situated in the Khodynka Field. The arena has a maximum seating capacity of 13,926 people.[3] The arena is primarily used to host basketball and ice hockey games.

Megasport Sport Palace was completed in December 2006.[4][5] It was one of the arenas that hosted the 2007 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships. It was also the host venue of the Sultan Ibragimov versus Evander Holyfield World Heavyweight Title Fight, on October 13, 2007. On 23 January 2008, CSKA Moscow hosted a EuroLeague regular season game against TAU Cerámica in the arena, in front of a near sellout 13,000 attendance crowd.[6]

In November 2008, the Cup of Russia figure skating competition was held at the arena.[7] Another important event hosted at the arena was the 2006–07 CEV Champions League Final four,[8] in which Tours VB won the title, after defeating VfB Friedrichshafen.[9]

Megasport Arena was rumored to be the venue for the 54th Eurovision Song Contest in 2009, but instead the competition was held at the Olympic Indoor Arena, in Moscow. On March 24, 2011, the International Skating Union (ISU) relocated the 2011 World Figure Skating Championships to the Megasport Arena, in Moscow.[10] This decision followed the cancellation of the championships in Tokyo, Japan, due to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. The championships were staged from April 24 to May 1, 2011. The 2011 European Curling Championships were also hosted at the arena, in December 2011.

In 2016, the arena became the home arena of the VTB United League club CSKA Moscow, for EuroLeague games.
