INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Fever announced today the 2021 regular season will tip off on the road on Friday, May 14 against the New York Liberty. On Sunday, May 16, the team returns for their first regular season home game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse with a 2 p.m. tip against the Liberty.
With ongoing construction on the Fieldhouse of the Future renovation project, the Fever’s first four regular season home games will be played at the Fieldhouse, with the remaining games at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum, located at the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center. The first game at the Coliseum will be Saturday, June 12, against the Chicago Sky.
Ticket information at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and Indiana Farmers Coliseum can be found at FeverBasketball.com/tickets. Attendance and capacity information for both sites will be announced at a later date.
“This is such an exciting time for Fever fans to be able to welcome our team back to playing in Indianapolis this season. The amount of Fever fans who tuned in to our streaming options last season while we were in the ‘Wubble’ showed how powerful our fanbase is and the interest we have attracted throughout bordering states,” Fever President Dr. Allison Barber said. “We are going to continue to work with the WNBA and local health officials to ensure fans can cheer on the Fever in-person this year, while following safe and social distancing guidelines.”
The Coliseum has a special place in Indiana’s rich basketball history, having been the home court for the Indiana Pacers until 1974. The venue also is home to the IUPUI men’s and women’s basketball programs and successfully hosted first and second round games for the 2021 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament.
“After the excitement of hosting the Horizon League Basketball Championship and the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament, we’re thrilled to continue this momentum by partnering with the Indiana Fever,” said Cindy Hoye, executive director, Indiana State Fair Commission. “Our beloved State Fairgrounds has a rich history with basketball and we’re thrilled to host our hometown Indiana Fever this year and continue making history.”
2021 regular season highlights include:
- Through their partnership with Anthem, Inc, the Fever will use part of the season to highlight long-standing racial and health disparities facing communities of color. As part of games against the Atlanta Dream, Los Angeles Sparks, and New York Liberty, the teams will host joint community and in-game activities around topics such as food insecurity and mental health.
- The Fever will continue to livestream home games at no cost for fans statewide at FeverBasketball.com, on the Indiana Fever’s Facebook page, or via the Fever app. This year’s streaming services will extend to fans in Ohio and Kentucky for the first time, as well.
