Home of the National Football League's Indianapolis Colts, state-of-the-art Lucas Oil Stadium opened in 2008 to replace the antiquated RCA Dome. The 1,800,000-square-foot (167,225-square-meter), seven-level stadium has a seating capacity of 63,000 (5,000 more than in the old RCA Dome) which can be expanded to 70,000 for basketball games and other events. The north and south ends of the stadium contain massive windows which are 88 feet (27 meters) tall and 244 feet (74 meters) wide. The north window affords a view of downtown Indianapolis. Other features include a fully retractible roof which can be opened and closed in nine minutes, two enormous high-definition scoreboards that are 97 feet (30 meters) wide and 53 feet (16 meters) tall, and an Indianapolis Colts Pro Shop.

Since opening, Lucas Oil Stadium has hosted many different types of events such as the 2011 Super Bowl, NCAA Final Four basketball tournaments, motorsports shows, rodeos, rock concerts, trade shows, and conventions.

Directions: Lucas Oil Stadium is located at 500 South Capitol Avenue, in downtown Indianapolis.
