Yubileyny Sports Palace (Russian: Спортивный комплекс "Юбилейный), Sportivniy kompleks Yubileyniy; also translated as Yubileiny (Jubilee) Palace of Sports, is an indoor sports arena and concert complex that is located in St. Petersburg, Russia. It houses more than 7,000 seats for ice hockey and basketball.

It is accessible from the Sportivnaya metro station. The complex was completed in 1967, as a present from the Federation of Trade Unions, to the city of Saint Petersburg, on the 50th anniversary of Soviet power.

The Palace hosts a wide variety of activities, including athletic training and competitions, conventions, festivals, and musical concerts.

History

The arena was originally opened in 1967. The arena was the long-time home venue of the Russian professional basketball club Spartak Saint Petersburg, hosting both the men's and women's team's games. From 2007 to 2009, it underwent major renovations, expansion, and upgrades. From 2015 to 2016, the arena was again renovated and upgraded. The arena was used as one of the host venues of the 2016 IIHF World Championship.

In recent years, the Russian professional basketball club Zenit Saint Petersburg has used the arena to host its home games.

Conditions improved in the next decade. Coaches have included Alexei Mishin, Igor Moskvin, Oleg Tataurov, Tatiana Mishina, and Tamara Moskvina, while skaters who have trained there include:
