Indy Fuel might be scoring some new digs in 2024.

That’s right, the Circle City’s hockey team plans to move into a new arena in Fishers as an anchor tenant of the city’s new event center + entertainment district.

Located between East 106th + East 116th streets (southeast of Ikea), the 8,500-seat arena would be built alongside:

  • Slate — a multi-family home + garden community
  • The Union — an expansion of The Yard with 10.5 acres of mixed-use development
  • The Commons — a premier cultural district with an array of restaurants + retail spots, as well as the Fishers Event Center, which will house Indy Fuel

In the announcement, Mayor Fadness said that the expansion “not only answers the call from CEOs and employees looking for restaurants and entertainment but can now be home to our schools’ graduations and statewide sporting events.” The Indy Fuel venue is planned to include family suites, enhanced areas for hosting + modern fan experiences.

This is only one part of the $650 million Fishers District expansion plan, which will unfold over the next several years. The “largest single-day announcement in Fishers’ history” encapsulates more than $1.1 billion in economic + entertainment investments for the city.

In case you were wondering, the city of Fishers had one of the largest population increases in the state last year with 1,720 additional residents. It also eclipsed the 100,000-residents mark for the first time with 101,171 people.

Plans for the center will be presented for appproval at the Fishers City Council meeting on Mon., Sept. 19.
