Where is water polo being played at the Paris Olympics?

Group stage matches for both the men’s and women’s tournaments will be held at the Aquatics Center, an arena built for the Paris Olympics in Saint Denis, a suburb of Paris. Diving and artistic swimming will also be held at the center. 

Group stage matches for the men, as well as knockout rounds and medal games for both tournaments will be held at Paris la Defense Arena, the largest indoor events venue in Europe. The Olympics will be the first time the arena will host aquatic sports and a 50-meter, 660,000-gallon swimming pool will be constructed on the arena’s floor. The arena will also be home to indoor swimming events during the Paris Games.

Opened in 2017, Paris La Defense Arena has hosted some of the most popular concert tours of the last seven years, including Paul McCartney and Imagine Dragons. In May, Taylor Swift is scheduled to play the arena for four nights as part of The Eras Tour.
