The Indianapolis Colts aren’t the only Hoosier team traveling abroad. The Indiana Pacers will head to London in January to face the Denver Nuggets for a regular season game at The O2 arena.
The NBA Global Games London 2017 will be held January 12. It is the first time the Pacers have traveled overseas for a regular season game. The team previously played preseason games in China, Philippines, Taiwan, Germany and Spain.
"It’s a great honor to be selected by the NBA to play in NBA Global Games London this upcoming season," said Rick Fuson, president and chief operating officer for the Pacers. "With both the Pacers and Colts playing in London within a matter of months, it’s great exposure not only for each team on their own; but a chance to share Indianapolis’ and Indiana’s passion for our pro sports teams on an international stage."
The team says the game will be designated as a home game for the Nuggets. Tickets will go on sale at the beginning of the season.
The Colts will head to London this season to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium on October 2.
