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

The duo has also created G2 TV for the Pacers website.
   
Pacers fans who want to be a part of the Pacers G2 Zone will pay $135 Pacers for a ticket for 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, which, according to White, features an array of amenities including in-seat wait service, shorter concession lines and larger seats.

“PG 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. “We want to get some great fans in our section and then we are going to rock it on our G2 TV at Pacers.com.”  

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 about 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 put out a new TV show at least once a week.

"Any time they have an idea, they're going to produce a new show," White said. "I think this show is going to really be something because the two of these guys are really getting into it big-time."

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

  1. Really, taking someone managing the regulation of Alcohol and making himthe President of an IVY Tech regional campus. Does he have an education background?

  2. Jan, great rant. Now how about you review the report and offer rebuttal of the memo. This might be more conducive to civil discourse than a wild rant with no supporting facts. Perhaps some links to support your assertions would be helpful

  3. I've lived in Indianapolis my whole and been to the track 3 times. Once for a Brickyard, once last year on a practice day for Indy 500, and once when I was a high school student to pick up trash for community service. In the past 11 years, I would say while the IMS is a great venue, there are some upgrades that would show that it's changing with the times, just like the city is. First, take out the bleachers and put in individual seats. Kentucky Motor Speedway has individual seats and they look cool. Fix up the restrooms. Add wi-fi. Like others have suggested, look at bringing in concerts leading up to events. Don't just stick with the country music genre. Pop music would work well too I believe. This will attract more young celebrities to the Indy 500 like the kind that go to the Kentucky Derby. Work with Indy Go to increase the frequency of the bus route to the track during high end events. That way people have other options than worrying about where to park and paying for parking. Then after all of this, look at getting night lights. I think the aforementioned strategies are more necessary than night racing at this point in time.

  4. Talking about congestion ANYWHERE in Indianapolis is absolutely laughable. Sure you may have to wait in 5 minutes of traffic to travel down BR avenue during *peak* times. But that is absolutely nothing compared to actual big cities. Indy is way too suburban to have actual congestion problems. So please, never bring up "congestion" as an excuse to avoid development in Indianapolis. If anything, we could use a little more.

  5. Oh wait. Never mind.
