Single-Game Tickets to go on sale beginning September 29 alongside clothing drive with local Fort Wayne businesses.

September, 25 2017 – The Fort Wayne Mad Ants presented by Lutheran Health Network, the NBA G League affiliate of the Indiana Pacers, announced today that single-game tickets for the 2017-18 season will go on sale on Friday, September 29. Tickets for home games are available online at the Coliseum box office, online at or by calling the Mad Ants Office at 260-469-4667.

Also, due to the horrific devastation stemming from Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and the current Hurricanes Jose and Maria, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants will partner with Rea Magnet Wire and Kustom Apparel in an effort to collect clothing for families in the affected areas in conjunction with tickets going on sale.

The first 500 people to bring new or gently used clothing items to the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum on September 29 will receive a Fort Wayne Mad Ants t-shirt in exchange. Donations will still be accepted after the first 500 t-shirts have been distributed to the public. Donations will open for all clothing items at 10 a.m. and last until 4 p.m.

“I witnessed the fury of Hurricane Andrew and Hurricane Erin as a Florida resident in the 90’s and the devastation these recent storms have brought is unimaginable and any assistance we can provide with the help from this wonderful community will be a blessing to so many of the affected families,” Mad Ants President Tim Bawmann said. “Let’s make sure we show the world what the Fort Wayne magic is all about.”

Pacers Sports & Entertainment also previously announced the donation of $20,000 to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts and $5,000 to the Indiana chapter of the American Red Cross in August.

For questions regarding donations, fans may call 260-469-HOOP.
