The Indy Championships Fund was created in 2017 to provide funding for the 2021 (original date; now rescheduled to 2024) NBA All-Star game, the 2021 NCAA Men’s Final Four and the 2022 College Football Playoffs Championship game. Through the Local Hosts and Organizing Committees of each of these major events, we work to enrich and sustain the continuing legacy of sport in greater Indianapolis and the State of Indiana as a means of generating significant economic impact for the Indianapolis region and our State, advancing Indianapolis and Indiana’s ever-growing reputation as a world-class city and state, and building and maintaining a platform of necessary and worthy social change in greater Indianapolis and Indiana.
