INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis Indians and Elements Financial today announced a multi-year partnership that positions the Midwest-based credit union as the naming rights partner for the Tribe's new Elements Financial Club. The social premium space will be constructed in Victory Field's upper level behind home plate during the offseason and will be ready by Opening Day 2020. It is the most significant upgrade in Victory Field's 23-year history.
"The Indianapolis Indians are thrilled to partner with Elements Financial on a space that we expect to be a hallmark of the Victory Field experience for many years to come," said Indians President & General Manager Randy Lewandowski. "Through Elements Financial's partnership, we will be able to curate a premium experience that not only offers the best vantage point to watch baseball, but arguably the best outdoor view of downtown Indianapolis."
The new Elements Financial Club is the latest in a series of capital improvement projects the Indians have undertaken in recent years in partnership with the Capital Improvement Board. The Tribe upgraded the Victory Field suites before the 2018 season and installed a high-definition video board and digital sound system before the 2017 season.
The new agreement between the Indians and Elements Financial is an extension of a long-term partnership that began in 2015 and now includes the naming rights of the most recent major investment at Victory Field.
"It's an honor for Elements Financial to serve as the sponsor of the Elements Financial Club and the Official Credit Union of the Indianapolis Indians," said Elements Financial Executive Vice President Ron Senci. "This partnership has grown since day one thanks to our shared corporate values, including a longtime heritage in Central Indiana and a focus on family. Everyone at Elements is proud of our relationship with the Indians, and we know our members will enjoy the new club carrying their credit union's name."
The new Elements Financial Club will offer Indians fans a broader mix of premium ticket options that includes ten private four-person loge boxes and open-table club seats for season ticket and group opportunities.
Among the features are 4,500 square feet of temperature-controlled interior space with big screen TVs and a mix of bar seating and soft seating.
The interior will feature a full-service bar in the shape of a home plate, and a 37-foot retractable glass wall system that opens the indoor club lounge to the outer seats directly behind home plate.
Aramark Sports and Entertainment, Victory Field's catering and concessions partner, will introduce food stations with a rotating menu of options that come included with every Elements Financial Club ticket.
Beer and wine will also be provided to Elements Financial Club ticket holders, while all guests on the Impact Suite Level will now be able to purchase individual drinks and cocktails without having to exit the floor.
In addition, the Elements Financial Club will be Victory Field's first year-round event venue, offering receptions and rental opportunities for guests throughout the offseason and during Indians road trips.
Plans for season tickets and quarter season private loge boxes are on sale now. Group tickets will go on sale in mid-September. To purchase, visit IndyIndians.com or call the Victory Field Box Office at (317) 269-3545.
