INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Butler University wants fans to have a piece of Hinkle Fieldhouse history.

On Saturday Butler University and a group called “People for Urban Progress” will be selling several hundred seats that were removed from the Fieldhouse as part of the ongoing renovation.

The seats are $100 each and will be on sale from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the CUE Farm at Butler.

Proceeds will raise money to help install public seating around Indianapolis, and for Hinkle Fieldhouse renovations.

Seats from the historic Hinkle Fieldhouse went on sale for season ticket holders on Friday. All the seats that went up for sale sold out in an hour.

The Fieldhouse is undergoing a $34 million renovation. Renovations are scheduled to be finished in October.

Hinkle Fieldhouse was originally built in 1928. At one point it was the largest basketball arena in the country. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
