State Farm Arena (formerly Philips Arena) is a multi-purpose indoor arena located in Atlanta, Georgia, and is home to the Atlanta Hawks, of the National Basketball Association, and the Atlanta Dream, of the Women's National Basketball Association. It also served as home to the National Hockey League's Atlanta Thrashers from 1999 to 2011, before the team was moved to Winnipeg. It opened in 1999 as Philips Arena at a cost of $213.5 million, replacing the Omni Coliseum. It is owned by the Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority and operated by the Atlanta Hawks. In the Hawks' 2017 and 2018 off-seasons, the arena was substantially renovated.


The arena has hosted three World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) pay-per-view events: Royal Rumble 2002, Backlash 2007, and Royal Rumble 2010. Six episodes of WWE Raw have also taken place at the arena (on June 10, 2002; April 21, 2003; February 6, 2006; September 4, 2006; November 17, 2008; and April 13, 2009). The Philips Arena will also host the 2011 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony on April 2, 2011.
