The RCA Dome is a domed stadium located in Indianapolis, Indiana which is the home of the Indianapolis Colts NFL franchise. It was completed in 1983 at a cost of $82 million as part of the Indiana Convention Center, with the costs split evenly between private and public money. It was finished a year before the Colts actually moved to the city. In 1984, the Colts relocated to Indianapolis from Baltimore.

The roof is made up of teflon-coated fiberglass and weighs 257 tons. It is held up by the air pressure inside the building. The ceiling is 193 feet high, though the height can actually vary up to 5 feet as the materials expand and contract with the weather. There are warning signs posted cautioning patrons of the high winds at the doors when exiting the RCA Dome. The RCA Dome is one of the few remaining inflated-roof sports structures.
