Lucas Oil Stadium
Lucas Oil Stadium is the new stadium that replaced the RCA Dome in 2008. It is home to the Indianapolis Colts and only the Indianapolis Colts. However the stadium is used for other entertainment events it is a multi-purpose facility for example the facility is already known for two famous music competitions in the United States; the Bands of America Grand National Championships, which features the top high school marching bands, and the Drum Corps International Championships. Both Organizations serve corps style bands. The stadium has already hosted a Super Bowl in 2012, Lucas Oil Stadium hosted Super Bowl XLVI. The stadium is often still referred to as “The House That Manning Built,” even though Peyton Manning no longer plays for the team. Prior to the construction of the new stadium it was already announced that Lucas Oil had already purchased the naming rights for $121 million over 20 years.
The exterior of the stadium is faced with reddish-brown brick trimmed with Indiana Limestone; a favorite among several other Indiana sports venues in the area such as Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Hinkle Fieldhouse, and the Fairgrounds Coliseum. This architectural style complements the older structures and plays to Indiana’s deep roots in community connection they share with each other over their love of all sports and in showing support anyway they can to their own teams and to other teams in the state.
