Located in the new Bay City CBD on Manila Bay, the SM Mall of Asia Arena is a sprawling indoor facility for prime time sporting and entertainment events. The 64,000 SM, six-level, state-of-the-art venue is open year-round and will host an impressive lineup of national and international concerts and events. With 16,000 seats on five levels and a full-house capacity of 20,000, this world-class sports/entertainment complex is an impressive addition to the existing Mall of Asia Complex, and an icon of entertainment for Metro Manila.

The dramatic, eye-shaped Arena with a full glass front rests on a slanted podium, which allows it to hold the large volume of the interior court within a vaulted space. The entire eye functions as a multimedia screen, projecting images of ongoing or future events while creating a dramatic view. The Arena offers a number of VIP-level facilities and amenities for all types of events including: press rooms, multimedia rooms, a lounge at the ground floor, celebrity dressing rooms and team dug-outs for sports events. The Arena has 41 fully furnished, exclusive corporate suites for 16 to 26 people to comfortably watch events.
