Pacers, Sports & Entertainment all under Conseco Fieldhouse roof

The Indiana Pacers have been a fixture on the Indiana sports scene since 1967. Conseco Fieldhouse has been a fixture on the Indianapolis skyline since 1999. Pacers Sports & Entertainment is now the fixture that combines the two entities.

The Pacers are well known. One of the National Basketball Association’s premier franchises, the Pacers have reached the NBA Playoffs 16 of the last 18 years that includes a stretch of reaching the Eastern Conference Finals six of 11 seasons and the NBA Finals in 2000.

Conseco Fieldhouse is also well known. In just five years, the 18,165-seat venue is regarded by many as the finest basketball arena in the world. It is also very unique with its one-of-a-kind retro look that combines all of the finest amenities an arena can offer.

Pacers Sports & Entertainment oversees both, along with the WNBA’s Indiana Fever, which has emerged as one of that league’s top teams. Owned by Melvin and Herbert Simon, co-chairmen of Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group, PS&E is one of Indiana’s largest entertainment industry companies with more than 200 full-time employees.

“We built this company with the Indiana Pacers franchise as our foundation,” said Donnie Walsh, PS&E’s Chief Executive Officer and President. “Now we have diversified into additional sports and entertainment areas that are helping to fuel our growth by providing year-round revenue generating events.”
