    The Indianapolis Colts originally played in the RCA Dome located in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. In 2004, the Colts expressed the want of a new stadium. With funding being secured that year, construction of the new stadium began the following year in 2005. The stadium was named Indiana Stadium. Before its completion it was renamed to Lucas Oil Stadium. In March of 2006, Lucas Oil Products purchased the naming rights for twenty years thus changing the stadiums name to Lucas Oil Stadium. The stadium was completed in 2008. Featuring a mechanized retractable roof and a window wall allows the stadium to function as either an indoor or outdoor facility. The roof consists of two panels that meet in the center of the stadium. Not only is this the only retractable roof to do so it also creates a 4.5 acre opening, the largest “hole in the sky” of all the retractable NFL stadium roofs. Seating capacity for football at Lucas Oil Stadium is 62,421. The capacity can be expanded to 70,000.
