The Indiana Pacers are renovating Bankers Life Fieldhouse, highlighted by a new premium seat offering in the arena’s south end. Seven of the arena’s 71 suites are being converted to loge boxes backed by a communal bar and club area.
Patrons in the new seating area can choose between two seat types: an upscale theater-style seat or a table and caster chair. Both options must be purchased in groups of four.
Additional upgrades at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in 2016 include renovated box offices, club level concession stands, and locker rooms. All updates are being paid by the City of Indianapolis’ Capital Improvement Board (CIB), which owns the 17-year-old arena and has pledged to make $33.5 million in improvements.
Outside the venue walls, the State of Indiana has earmarked $2 million to build a pedestrian walkway connecting Bankers Life Fieldhouse to St. Vincent Center, the Pacers’ new $50 million practice facility, currently under construction.
