Plan Your Visit
Welcome to Gainbridge Fieldhouse
More than just iconic architecture painted against the skyline of one of America’s fastest-growing cities, Gainbridge Fieldhouse pulses with energy and invites us in to visit with the spirits from all those Where Were You When moments that wrap us up in true Hoosier Hospitality. It anchors the downtown and is a welcoming place for visitors and locals alike to relive some of the magical events that put Indianapolis on the map. Its history is the history of our city and state, of our rightful position as the cradle of basketball and our maturation into a cultural center in the Midwest. The Fieldhouse is certainly the best place in the NBA to watch a basketball game. That’s undeniable as it is fitting, of course, since We Grow Basketball. But like its home city, it is so much more than the game we love.
While the distinct exterior design of the Fieldhouse is a quaint and appropriate homage to the fieldhouse gymnasiums that still pepper Indiana towns, the state-of-the-art facility has become a premier venue for more than 2 million guests attending 550 live performances, concerts, conventions, and games every year. This includes the national FFA convention, the Big Ten Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, rodeos, ice skating performances, high school athletics championships, and more. And unlike so many professional sports and performance venues, Gainbridge Fieldhouse prides itself on being a true community asset that belongs to all of us.
So whether you are attending an event or just visiting downtown, I hope you will stop by and feel for yourself what makes us different.
