Indiana Fever to Stage Guinness World Records® Attempt Presented by Papa John's

Fever Plans to Establish Most People Lighting a Glowstick Simultaneously at a Single Venue

Official Release | May 20, 2015

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Fever plans to open their 2015 WNBA schedule with a bang – or at least thousands of glowing bright lights – during their home opener on Saturday, June 6, when the club hosts the Minnesota Lynx (7:00 p.m.) during a Guinness World Records® Attempt presented by Papa John's. The Fever plan to establish the record for the most people lighting a glowstick simultaneously at a single venue.

All fans entering Bankers Life Fieldhouse will receive a red glowstick courtesy of Papa John's Pizza, and when the lights dim before the Fever's team introduction, fans will be instructed to light their glowsticks simultaneously. Guinness World Records representatives will be on site to verify the record.

"This is a fun and exciting way to showcase the start of a new season," said Fever President and General Manager Kelly Krauskopf. "I want to encourage everyone to be at the home opener and be a part of history as we go for the record. We look forward to kicking off a new season with our new head coach, a talented core of star players and the best fans in the WNBA."

The Fever, hoping to extend a WNBA record with an 11th consecutive playoff berth in 2015, begin their 16th season when the glowsticks shine before a rematch of the 2012 WNBA Finals that produced the team's first WNBA title.

Other highlights of the evening will include glow-in-the-dark face painting for kids and a halftime appearance from Guinness World Record Holder Ken Kovach who will perform with the Skyriders Trampoline Show. Kovach holds a hula-hoop record with 131 revolutions in one minute while doing somersaults.
