Pacers annual FanJam set for Oct. 15

UPDATE: Oct. 6 — The Pacers officially announced details for FanJam, a free event as always. All fans in attendance will receive a free hot dog, bag of chips and a Pepsi product; the first 5,000 fans will receive a Pacers T-shirt.

Also, instead of the usual autograph session, fans can now instead take a photo with a player.

“In response to fan feedback, the Pacers are offering even more fans the opportunity to meet their favorite Pacers players.  Using the new “Pacers Pix,” Pacers faithful will be able to take a photo with their favorite players and have immediate access to share the photos via social media.  This new addition to the FanJam festivities will replace the traditional autograph sessions of previous seasons. ”

1:00: Doors open
2:00 – 3:00: Team scrimmage
3:00 – 4:00: Fan photos with players

The Pacers’ roster consists of at least nine new faces and is absent of a star, so you’ll need extra time to become familiar with the team.

With just one home preseason game — Oct. 10 vs Maccabi Haifa — FanJam is another way to get to know them before the season-opener on Oct. 18 against Brooklyn.

FanJam will be held at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Sunday, Oct. 15 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.

The annual event gives fans an up-close look at the team before the regular season. At the family-friendly event, they introduce the team, hold a light scrimmage, force the rookies to sing and dance, and then spend time signing autographs.

It does not conflict with the Colts, who are in Tennessee for Monday Night Football.

The Pacers open training camp on Tue., Sept. 26 and are scheduled to have three two-a-days.
