RCA Dome


Prior to moving to Indianapolis after the 1983 season, the Colts played in Baltimore. The Baltimore Colts had played in Baltimore since 1953, at Memorial Stadium, also the home of the Baltimore Orioles (MLB). Before the Colts decided to move to Indianapolis, the city already had a dome stadium under construction in 1982. The city decided to build the stadium because of its adaptability to accommodate a variety of events, including football. Meanwhile in Baltimore, the Colts were dissatisfied with the conditions of Memorial Stadium and decided to move to Indianapolis after the 1983 NFL season. Originally named the Hoosier Dome, grand opening ceremonies took place on May 3, 1984.

The Indianapolis Colts first game at the RCA/Hoosier Dome was on September 2, 1984. The RCA/Hoosier Dome is very similar to the Metrodome in Minneapolis. The roof of the stadium consists of Teflon coated fiberglass. Two tiers of 60,000 seats circle the entire Astroturf playing field. In 1994, RCA bought the naming rights to the stadium, thus it was renamed the RCA Dome.

The RCA Dome was not built primarily for football, but for conventions and trade shows. Other than being the home of the Colts, the RCA Dome hosts concerts, large banquets, religious assemblies, and various sporting events including the NCAA Final Four. In December 2004, the Colts announced that they would move out of the RCA Dome and into a new stadium to be built in downtown Indianapolis for the 2008 season.
