  • The ceremonial groundbreaking took place on September 20, 2005.
  • Foundation work began the week after Thanksgiving, 2005.
  • The stadium has a capacity of 63,000 for football games, and can be expanded to 70,000 for basketball.
  • It replaces the RCA Dome, located just to the north, as the home of the National Football League's Indianapolis Colts.
