New hockey team to play at Indiana fairgrounds

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The owners of a new minor league hockey franchise plan to make the renovated Indiana State Fairgrounds Coliseum its home starting next year.

The new East Coast Hockey League franchise will mark a return of professional hockey to Indianapolis since its last team folded in 2004.

Fairgrounds officials announced Monday, Nov. 25, that the ownership group led by Carmel businessman Jim Hallett has signed a five-year agreement to play in the arena, which is undergoing a $63 million renovation. The team is to announce its name Tuesday and start playing in October 2014.

The Indianapolis team will join a league that now has 22 franchises across the country, including teams in Fort Wayne, Evansville and Cincinnati.

The renovated Fairgrounds Coliseum also will be home court for IUPUI’s basketball teams.
