An Indiana Pacers preseason schedule that features one home game in Bankers Life Fieldhouse and a home/neutral site game in Evansville, Indiana, was announced Friday.

The six-game preseason schedule also includes four away games.

"I think it’s great any time we can take our team to different parts of the state and let our fans in these areas see us in person," said Larry Bird, the Pacers’ president of basketball operations. "We take pride in being the ‘Indiana’ Pacers and look forward to going to Evansville. We think the fans there will like our team and our opponent, Milwaukee, is one of the young, talented teams that could be a playoff team this season."

The Pacers’ Media Day will be Monday, Sept. 26, with training camp under new coach Nate McMillan opening Sept. 27.
