The Indiana Pacers will be hosting the All-Star game in their own backyard in 2023 and tickets for the Saturday night events leading up to the All-Star game are about to go on sale. It is likely that they will sell out quick so you will want to try and get them sooner rather than later.
The Pacers have announced that they are releasing just over 10,000 tickets for purchase to the general public at 2 PM eastern. It is unclear how quickly they will sell out so you will want to get them quickly.
The Pacers will look to be well represented at the weekend festivities.
The Saturday night festivities will include the 3-point contest, the skills challenge, and the dunk contest. Given that it will be in their backyard, it is likely that Pacers will compete in multiple of the events in front of their hometown crowd.
This past season both Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield competed in the 3-point contest. Additional Pacers such as Obi Toppin have previously competed in the dunk contest, so it could happen again this upcoming year.
There is also a good chance that the Pacers will be represented in the competitions as well with Jarace Walker a good candidate to make the rising stars challenge and Tyrese Haliburton likely be a an All-Star again.
And the last time the Pacers hosted the dunk contest was quite the showing.
Players like Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins brought an All-Time level dunk contest to the Circle City. So if this years contest is even marginally what that one was it will be a can’t-miss event in the Indianapolis area.
