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. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
