The Ynares Sports Arena is an indoor arena located in Pasig, Metro Manila, Philippines. The stadium has hosted the basketball games of the Philippine Basketball Association, Philippine Basketball League, and Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League, as well as college basketball tournaments. The arena was built in the former location of Rizal's provincial capitol, just nearby the location of former Rizal Provincial Jail Facility.

It is the primary home venue of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League's Pasig City MCW Sports, playing in the arena since 2022. It was also the home of the Makati Super Crunch from 2018 until 2019. In 2023, it was the designated home arena of the Negros–ICC Blue Hawks of the Maharlika Pilipinas Volleyball Association.

ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) teams Philippine Patriots and the San Miguel Beermen also played home games in the arena. The Beermen notably lost the deciding game of the 2012 ABL Finals to the Indonesia Warriors in the arena.[1] It also has hosted games of the UNTV Cup.

The Philippine Basketball Association was meant to play exclusively in the arena during the 2021 PBA Philippine Cup due to COVID-19 restrictions.[2] However, when Metro Manila, where Pasig is a part of, was put in a more restricted quarantine, games were transferred to a venue outside of Metro Manila.[3]
