Officials begin construction on the Pacers’ G League team’s new arena in Noblesville



Noblesville, Indiana – The goal of the city’s new events center is to really innovate in Noblesville.

Officials from the Indiana Pacers and community leaders participated in a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Noblesville Events Center. The G League affiliate of the Indiana Pacers will be based at Innovation Mile.

In addition to hosting conferences, concerts, sporting events, and community gatherings, the 120,000-square-foot, 3,400-seat arena will host more. City officials stated that the opening is anticipated to occur in the 2025–2026 season.

This season, the Mad Ants, who were formerly based in Fort Wayne, will host their games at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. When the club eventually relocates to Noblesville, its name will change.

The official minor league of the NBA is the G League. Some players on two-way contracts are able to play for both their G League team and the franchise’s parent NBA club, with the goal being to prepare them for life in the NBA.

Innovation Mile stretches along Interstate 69 over almost 600 acres. The $28 million, 40,000-square-foot Indiana Joint Replacement Institute operation center and medical office building saw its groundbreaking in September.

The construction is seen by local leaders as a “campus designed to drive sustainable economic growth in Noblesville—a place to work, live, play, engage, and learn.”

Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen, NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum, G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim, and Pacers Sports & Entertainment CEO Rick Fuson were among the attendees at the groundbreaking ceremony on Monday.
