AccorHotels Arena is the new name of POPB, the Paris sports and concerts arena still referred to by parisians as Bercy. The final of the Men's Handball World Championship of January 29th 2017 is one of the great events that happen there.
AccorHotels Arena is a polyvalent indoor sport and concert arena in Paris on the model of NYC Madison Square Garden. It reopened in October 2015 after heavy renovation that turned it into one of the best arenas in the world.
AccorHotels Arena, formerly known as Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy (POPB), is the venue of many concerts and sports events, including the famous Paris Masters. AccorHotels Arena has an original pyramid shape. AccorHotels Arena is completely covered by lawns. The seating varies from 8,000 to 20,000, depending on the event.
