March 24, 2012

Indiana Pacers players George Hill and Paul George have teamed up with Gatorade to create a fan section in Bankers Life Fieldhouse called the Pacers G2 Zone.

Pacers fans who want to be a part of the Pacers G2 Zone will pay $135 for a ticket to five home games, a G2 Zone T-shirt, a Gatorade game towel and an invitation to special events with Hill and George.

The price comes out to $27 per game—$24 (George’s number) plus $3 (Hill’s number), explained Pacers spokesman Eddie White. Seats in the Pacers G2 Zone will be in Section 120 of the Krieg DeVault Club Level.

“[Paul George] and I were tossing around doing something and this idea came up and we loved it,” said Hill, a former standout at IUPUI and Broad Ripple High School.

The format and content of the duo’s TV show will vary widely.

“It could cover just about anything,” White said. “It will be things like movie reviews from the two Georges, discussions about recent road trips, tours of their homes and hometowns, or really just anything about the two of them and their interests on or off the court.”

The pilot show was put up this week and the two plan to post a new show at least once a week.

Games featured in the Pacers G2 Zone package: March 23 vs. Phoenix, March 29 vs. Washington, April 9 vs. Toronto, April 16 vs. Minnesota, and April 23 vs. Detroit.
