Ep. 45: Eddie White on the Pacers’ experience in London

Eddie White has traveled across the world and worked for multiple professional sports teams. He’s currently the Director of Corporate Communications for the Indiana Pacers, and the host of Pacers Overtime on 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis.

White was part of the team’s traveling party to London as the franchise played in its first regular-season game outside of the United States on Jan. 12. They faced the Denver Nuggets across the pond and inside The O2 Arena, which opened in 2007 and holds 20,000.

NBA fans in attendance saw the Pacers play terribly, losing 140-112. “What happened in London stays in London,” C.J. Miles said afterwards.

On this podcast, we don’t talk about the game.

Instead, we talked about everything that led up to the game, like dinner at Kensington Palace, various transportation options in London, and being accompanied by sponsors on the trip.
