Pacers to Commit to Indiana Long-Term?
The Indiana Pacers’ $16 million investment in a sound system and gargantuan new scoreboards at Bankers Life Fieldhouse could signal the team’s commitment to Indianapolis for the long haul.
For fans, the upgrades will modernize the audio and visual experience inside the 13-year-old fieldhouse, Pacers business leaders say, and will keep the city-owned Downtown building in the top tier of arenas.
But the team’s investment also raises a question of timing. Is it a sweetener to get taxpayers to pony up more money?
