Help us keep the Big Ten in the Circle City with #B1GInIndy

The Big Ten Football Championship started here, and we want it to stay here. Here’s how you can let the conference know.

The closest we might get to playing football is fowling — but that won’t stop us from spreading the word to keep the Big Ten Football Championship here.

The Big Ten Football Championship has been played in Indy since it began in 2011 — but with the addition of West Coast teams to the conference and Las Vegas’ bid announcement, it looks like the field to host the game from 2025-2028 may get pretty competitive.

Indiana Sports Corp. has submitted a bid to Big Ten to keep the game in Indy, as well as play host for its 2025 and 2027 men’s and women’s basketball championships.

These events can have a big impact on our local economy. The football championship historically brings 65,000+ fans to the city and generates $25 million or more in revenue.

What can you do to help? Let’s flood social media with our excitement for keeping the game here — and commitment to making it the best it’s ever been — by using the hashtag #B1GInIndy.

The Big Ten is expected to announce their decision sometime this winter — we’ll let you know as soon as we get word.
