Pacers Announce Public Ticket Sales for Upcoming Home Games
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers today announced that tickets for upcoming home games will be available for sale to the general public beginning Monday, March 8. Tickets for games from March 17 through April 21 will go on sale at pacers.com/tickets as well as at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse Box Office weekdays from noon to 5pm.
The Pacers have gradually increased attendance from about 1,000 fans to start the season to approximately 3,000 for the March 4 contest against the Denver Nuggets. While the Marion County Health Department has approved Bankers Life Fieldhouse for 25% of capacity, or roughly 4,500 fans, for Pacers games, the team continues to prioritize the health and wellness of fans, players, and staff with a Crawl-Walk-Run approach to on-sale dates and game capacities.
"As we knew they would be, Pacers fans have been excited to return to the Fieldhouse and players have loved having them back in the building," said PS&E President & COO Rick Fuson. "Our responsible approach has paid off and fans have taken our health and safety protocols seriously, but we also know we are not yet out of the woods. This gradual ticket sales strategy means we can continually assess the data, work with health experts, and be flexible in responding to changes, as needed, to keep health and safety priority number one."
Tickets for the final nine home games of the season will go on sale on April 19.
The Pacers also announced that the postponed contest against the San Antonio Spurs, originally scheduled for February 22, has been rescheduled for April 19 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Tickets purchased for the original date will be valid for the new one, and those needing refunds should visit Pacers.com/Tickets.
PS&E's COVID-19 Health & Safety Guidelines, recognized as a best practice by the International WELL Building Institute with the 2020 WELL Heath-Safety Rating for Facilities Operations and Management, remain in place for all home games for the remainder of the season. These key strategies are designed to give guests the safest possible Fieldhouse experience.
