The Maze Bank Arena is a large sports arena located in La Puerta, Los Santos, in Grand Theft Auto V. It is home of the city's basketball team the Los Santos Panic, and where the auditions for the reality show Fame or Shame are held.

In the mission Fame or Shame, Michael and Trevor travel to the arena in order to rescue Michael's daughter, Tracey, from the clutches of pop-sensation Lazlow.
