ARCO Arena is a defunct indoor arena located in Sacramento, California, United States. Opened in 1988, it was the home of the Sacramento Kings of the National Basketball Association (NBA) from 1988 to 2016. It hosted nearly 200 spectator events each year.

In June 2021, the Kings and the City of Sacramento announced that the site had been donated to California Northstate University, and that a medical school and hospital will be built there. The arena is scheduled to be demolished in summer 2022. On March 19, 2022, the Kings hosted the final-ever event at the arena, reverting to the original ARCO Arena name for a free farewell event attended by thousands of fans and Kings personnel/alumni. Fans were allowed to enter the arena, reminisce about their past memories there, and say their goodbyes before the arena's demolition.
