Fifth Third Arena, known to locals as The Shoe, opened in 1989. Located on the campus of the University of Cincinnati, it sits just to the east of Nippert Stadium and is connected to the old Armory Field House, their former gym.

When it opened, it was known as the Myrl H. Shoemaker Center (1989 - 2005).

Home to the Cincinnati Bearcats basketball and volleyball programs.

The arena is set to go a total facelift in 2017. The building will be closed during renovations. The basketball team will play home games during the 2017 - 2018 season at BB&T Arena on the campus of Northern Kentucky University. The renovations are hoping to be completed in time for the 2018 - 2019 basketball season.

Location - 2700 Bearcats Way, Cincinnati, Ohio
