Big Ten Tournament Parking

Heading to the Big Ten Women's Basketball Tournament? Or the Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament? Both tournaments will be played this year at Bankers Life Fieldhouse (formerly Conseco Fieldhouse) in downtown Indianapolis. Here are a few tips for parking:
  • If you prefer to plan ahead, you can reserve a spot before you head downtown (book now) and remove the hassle of finding parking.
  • One of the most convenient places to park for Bankers Life Fieldhouse is the Virginia Avenue Parking Garage, which connects to the Fieldhouse via a walkway over Delaware Street. Prices vary but the standard rate for all day is $12, and some spaces are reserved.
  • Your most frugal bet is to find an empty meter space a few blocks away and walk a few blocks. Meters cost either $1 or $1.50 per hour until 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and are free on Sundays.
  • Another good option is to park at Circle Centre mall. The mall has three giant parking garages with plenty of spaces. The mall often charges a $20 event rate, but if you make a mall purchase before or after the game, show your receipt for the usual rate, which starts at $2 for the first three hours.

  • For visitors unfamiliar with Indianapolis, the Fieldhouse, hotels and the rest of downtown's attractions are within easy walking distance. So if you're staying in a hotel downtown, no need to get in the car and find a new parking space. Enjoy your visit!
