Are you getting a little tired of the usual Indianapolis sports? Are games at Conseco Filedhouse and Lucas Oil Stadium too crowded for you to truly enjoy? Then it’s time you said goodbye to the Indianapolis Colts and the Indiana Pacers because there’s another team in town-The Indiana Ice. This tier 1 hockey team plays in the Eastern Division of the United States Hockey League. Formerly known as the Danville Wings, the squad found its new Indiana home in 2004 in the Pepsi Coliseum at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, where most of the home games are now played.
Whether you’re interested in becoming a season-ticket holder who cheers from the front row at every game, or just want to check out the action once or twice, with the wide array of packages and specials, you won’t have a problem finding the ticket deal for you. You can buy a season ticket package by the full or half season, with discounts of up to 25% off the price at the door. The Indiana Ice are not just a great value in Indianapolis, they are a great team. In 2008 they were named both “USHL Eastern Division Champs’ on the ice and the ‘USHL Organization of the Year” in the front office. While these are great achievements, the Ice are hungrier than ever to reach the top of their league and bring home the Clark Cup. This is the top prize in the USHL and is their version of the Stanley Cup in the NHL.
Besides being a huge attraction in Indianapolis, the Indiana Ice are ambassadors for the game they play. Since they are located in a geographical region where hockey is not always on the forefront of the sports world, the Ice offer clinics on skating and how to play the game. They hope these sessions will help inspire a few local Indianapolis kids to play hockey here in their own hometown.
