Lucas Oil Stadium officially opened on August 16, 2008 after a three-year construction phase. In total, Lucas Oil Stadium cost more than $700 million.

The Colts played their first-ever game inside Lucas Oil on August 24, 2008, during Week 3 of the NFL preseason. The Colts lost to the Bills, 20-7.

The Lucas Oil Stadium capacity is recorded as 67,000, making it relatively small by NFL standards. It’s the 21st largest NFL stadium in the league.

Size isn’t everything, though. Because of its utility and central location, Lucas Oil Stadium is often used for major sports events, like the NFL Draft Combine and the 2029 Final Four.

Where Is Lucas Oil Stadium Located?

Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Colts, is located in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.
