About the Seats
First off, the Club level at Bankers Life for a basketball is very, very good. I was concerned with slightly behind the baseline, but the view was surprisingly excellent. I wish I would have gone down to see what Row 1 looked like. I'll bet it was fantastic.
Club seats came with in-seat wait service - even for a pre-season game. This is a huge perk in Indy where the food choices aren't my favorite. You can order off the club menu instead of having to wander the arena for the perfect item.
The issue I had with these seats is that Section 102 is right next to Area 55. That's the Roy Hibbert cheering section. But because he's a terrible basketball player, it's really turned into a frat-style cheering section of loud, young boys - some with instruments. Quite honestly, it's the perfect party section. They play music and they're passionate about the Pacers. But if you're not really looking for that kind of atmosphere - or don't want your kids learning how to shout insults, sit far, far away. I didn't care for it, but the guy next to me did and I'm sure a lot of Pacers fans would soak up the camaraderie.
Overall, the club level is great - and even better closer to mid-court where the views are better and the frat-house can't be heard! ...More
