A majority of elimination round games are held in the Araneta Coliseum, the Philippines' largest indoor arena. When the Araneta Coliseum was unavailable, Cuneta Astrodome at Pasay (both at Metro Manila), Ynares Center in Antipolo and the newly opened Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig are minority of elimination round games are held. Playoff games are exclusively held at venues in Metro Manila, most especially the Araneta Coliseum.

Provincial games are held on selected locations throughout the country, with most of the games held on a Thursday or a Saturday. Very rarely does a playoff game is held outside Metro Manila, if at all.

All-Star games, on the other hand, are currently rotated between Luzon and Visayas/Mindanao. Metro Manila last hosted the all-star game on 2003; Baguio and La Union jointly co-hosted the all-star weekend for 2007. Bacolod hosted the 2008 edition which ran from April 24-27, 2008.

Five games had been held overseas: one each at Jakarta, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Guam and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Recently, the league is in a planning stages to build a PBA Coliseum that is rumored either to be located in North EDSA in Quezon City or at the reclamation area beside the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay.
