INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Bankers Life Fieldhouse will be getting a new name.

The naming rights end in 2019 and won't be renewed. Tuesday's announcement means the Fieldhouse where the Pacers and Fever play will have to find a new sponsor.

The Fieldhouse opened in 1999 as Conseco before the name was changed to Bankers Life in 2011.

"CNO Financial and Bankers Life have been the naming rights sponsor of the Fieldhouse for nearly two decades, and we achieved and exceeded many of our sponsorship goals throughout the length of this partnership," said Gary Bhojwani, chief executive officer of CNO Financial. "CNO is proud to be headquartered in central Indiana and to support the communities where our associates live and work. We are actively working with Pacers Sports & Entertainment to identify the next phase of our collaboration together."
