– Ale Emporium to Host Game 5 Viewing Party
– Welcome Back Rally Scheduled for Indiana Fever at Indianapolis Airport Civic Plaza
INDIANAPOLIS – In search of their second WNBA championship in four seasons, the Indiana Fever are hosting a viewing party for Wednesday’s decisive Game 5 in Minnesota, at the Ale Emporium (8617 Allisonville Road). Fans are encouraged to wear RED for the viewing party that begins at 7:30 p.m. Game 5 of the WNBA Finals begins at 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
The Ale Emporium features 50 draft beer selections, with all drafts on special, starting at $3.25. Cheer cards, Fever beads and drink koozies will be distributed as supplies last, while the Fever attempts to become the first No. 3 seed ever to win the WNBA title.
Following the championship game, the Fever will return to Indianapolis on Thursday morning, returning to Indianapolis airport just before noon. The Indianapolis Airport Authority will conduct a Fever Welcome Back Rally at Civic Plaza when the team arrives. Fans are encouraged to arrive by 11:45. Complimentary snacks and Starbucks coffee will be served.
The Fever Playoffs are presented by Old National Bank. The Fever won Game 4 on Sunday and hope to defeat the Minnesota Lynx again in Game 5 to capture the WNBA title, the same as they did in 2012 when the Fever beat the Lynx for their first championship and the first pro basketball championship in Indiana since the ABA Indiana Pacers in 1973.
Participating in their WNBA-record 11th consecutive postseason, the Fever have more playoff victories (35) than any franchise in WNBA history.
