The 5-minute drone light shows from Verge Aero will be part of ESPN’s pre-game broadcast on both Saturday and Sunday night.

The lights shows will consist of as many as 500 drones and will display team helmets, mascots, an Indianapolis skyline, a countdown clock, and simulated fireworks.

The Verge Aero drone lights show will take place around 6:15 pm each night.

A special show is planned for Monday night when the drones will show in real-time the world’s largest scoreboard, displaying both the teams’ logos and the game’s score at the end of the second and third quarters.

“The is an innovative and original concept that has never been seen at a CFP National Championship,” said Susan Baughman, president of the 2022 Indianapolis Host Committee. “Fans can celebrate teams with a scheduled drone show each night and expect to see the world’s largest scoreboard on game day. These larger-than-life aerial drone displays celebrate our city with unique wow moments.”

Verge Aero uses its GPS-guided drones to create the light show over the Convention Center. The unmanned aircraft will take off from Pan Am Plaza in Indy’s Mile Square and will be piloted by an -certified pilot at a ground control station, WIBC reports.

The Verge Aero drone light shows will be visible from most of the downtown area.
