Fishers Event Center Hard Hat Tour

Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness and Jim Hallett, owner of the Indy Fuel, recently got a hardhat tour of the highly anticipated Fishers Event Center. Slated to open its doors in November 2024, construction of the ​​7,500-seat entertainment and sporting event venue is well underway. Once complete, the space will be home to the Indy Fuel, the professional hockey minor league affiliate of the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks, the Indoor Football League’s Fishers Freight, and the Pro Volleyball Federation’s Indy Ignite, and will host other sporting events and concerts. 

Ground broke on the mega-project in March 2023, but it’s already easy to visualize how awe-inspiring the facility will be. The outline of the field portion of the complex, as well as suites and other spaces are visible. Located off I-69 between 106th and 116th Streets, the Event Center is at the heart of the Fishers District’s planned expansion and near the Nickel Plate District with direct access to restaurants and retail options.

The city’s $170 million investment in this project is in response to the growing demand for expanded entertainment and dining options for Fishers residents and visitors alike, and is part of a bigger vision for the city to be a leader in creating a smart, vibrant, and entrepreneurial city.
