Visit Lucas Oil Stadium, a magnificent multi-purpose arena that serves as the home of the Indianapolis Colts NFL football team. With its retractable roof and a large window that can be opened for stunning views, its state-of-the-art features take it to the pinnacle of modern stadiums around the world. Marvel at the reddish-brown mock-industrial design of this pioneering arena in the heart of the downtown area of Indianapolis.
Purchase tickets to a game and enjoy the fervent atmosphere as the start of competition approaches. Teams decide several hours before the beginning of each game whether or not to open the retractable roof. Revel in the sunshine on a warm, cloudless day, as you enjoy hot dogs and drinks at your seat. See how the retractable window opens, allowing views of the downtown Indianapolis area during games.
On a non-game day, join a stadium tour to learn about the history and architecture of this imposing structure. Pay a fee for a tour, which typically lasts about 75 minutes. Get a discounted price by booking in advance. Snap photos of the interior of the stadium, as you explore the NFL locker room and the press box, among other parts not usually open to the public.
Construction on the stadium commenced in 2005, before it opened in 2008. If you’re looking for a change of sport, get tickets to an Indy Eleven game in the United Soccer League in this stadium. Music concerts and other events also take place in this popular and versatile arena.
Lucas Oil Stadium is on the southern edge of the Wholesale District, in the center of Indianapolis. Walk south from the Soldiers & Sailors Monument for less than 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) to get here in about 15 minutes. It is also right beside the Indianapolis railway and bus station. While here, explore the surroundings for other nearby gems such as the Indiana Convention Center, Victory Field and the White River.
