Indiana Pacers guards George Hill and Paul George are taking their G2 Zone at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to another level this season. Roy Hibbert's Area 55 has been a big success, recently filling up for a third season.
This year the G2 boys will be giving away 36 pairs of season tickets (that's 72 tickets for my fellow English majors) starting the process down at IU on Saturday among the revelers tailgating before the IU vs. Ball State football game. Here's the key info on there Hill and George will be Saturday along with what fans need to do to earn season tickets in the G2 Zone.
The "Kick Off" of the G2 Zone Part II campaign will be this Saturday on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington before the Hoosiers take on Ball State in football. Both George and Hill will be on site before the game to meet fans and recruit new members of the G2 Zone Part II. Players are tentatively scheduled to be in Hoosier Village, southeast parking lot of Memorial Stadium at 5:30 p.m.
To be eligible to join the G2 Zone, Pacers fans must team up in pairs and submit a photo of them along with a brief bio to Pacers.com/G2Zone. The deadline to submit a photo is Sunday, Sept. 23, at 11:59 p.m. Finalists will be notified the next day and must attend the Finals in Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Saturday, Sept. 29, at 2:00 p.m. The 72 winners will be announced that evening.
The G2 Zone seats on the opposite side of the Fieldhouse from Area 55 which should offer the chance for some solid chant coordination.
