How To Get To Philsports Arena (formerly ULTRA)?

1:20 AM by Metro Manila Directions · 14 comments






Philsports Arena, or formerly known as ULTRA (short for University of Life Training and Recreation Arena), is an indoor sporting arena that is part of the premier national sports complex in the country called Philsports Complex. Philsports Arena has been the home of many basketball leagues from the time it was built in the 1980s. The PBA games was played here for seven years before it transferred to the Cuneta Astrodome. The Southeast Asian Games and other international and local games were also held here. Concerts and other social (religious, political, cultural) events are also being held here from time to time. UAAP and NCAA basketball games are currently being played in this arena.

The Philsports Complex, maintained by the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC),  houses the offices of Philippine Sports Commission, Philippine Olympic Committee and other national sports associations. The Philsports Football and Athletic Stadium and Philsports Swimming Center are also within this compound.

The Arena was also used as an evacuation center during the Typhoon Ketsana (Ondoy) and Parma (Pepeng) onslaught in Metro Manila, particularly in Pasig City.

Directions on how to commute/drive/get to Philsports Arena (formerly ULTRA):
