Situated at the heart of the Mall of Asia Complex, the MOA Arena has hosted a variety of events since its inauguration in 2012.

Located at the heart of the Mall of Asia complex, SM Mall of Asia Arena was a dream built into reality by the late Henry Sy Sr. as a thank you to the Filipino people for their continued patronage of the SM Group. The SM MOA Arena is a part of the vision of SM in improving tourism for the country through staging world-class events. 

Constructed as an eye-shaped facade, the venue symbolizes the message of being a “feast for the eye” for its patrons and partners. Unveiled to the public on June 16, 2012 SM MOA Arena has made a mark in the industry by showcasing both international and local world-class talents for both entertainment and sports. 

MOA Arena is the first and only venue in Southeast Asia with Premier Suites located at the third floor and has a Premier Café where Premier Suite guests and owners can look forward to gastronomic delights from the Moment Group.

“For all these years, the SM Mall of Asia Arena has stood to become an ‘eye-con’ to all the local and international artists and athletes we have welcomed, as well as to the 8 Million patrons who have walked through our doors,” says Herman Medina-Cue, Chief Operations Officer of SM Lifestyle Inc., the operating company behind the Arena. “It is because of them that we are able to make a mark in the world of entertainment.” 

The SM MOA Arena still has a lot in store for patrons and fans in the coming months, as numerous world-class artists and athletes showcase their talents: NCAA Season 82 Opening and LANY will be lighting up July; August sees the comeback of ONE Championship and the JGYD Conference; September hosts for the UAAP Season Opening, Mr. & Mrs. Chinatown and 1975.
