Facts

  • One of four air-supported domed stadiums in the United States, the RCA Dome was home to the NFL's Indianapolis Colts through 2007.
  • Demolition began in May 2008, extending the Dome's life to one year longer than another local sports facility. Market Square Arena was located several blocks to the east and north until 2001.
  • William Hudnut, Mayor of Indianapolis during the building's construction, cut power to the fans that kept the dome's roof inflated on September 24, 2008, causing the roof to slowly deflate.
  • A major expansion of the Indianapolis Convention Center will occupy this site.
  • Lucas Oil Stadium was constructed just to the south from 2005 until 2008. The Colts moved to the new stadium beginning in the 2008 season.
  • The Van Kamp Building formerly stood on the western part of this site.
