Maybe you could set a custom white balance on your camera prior to the game starting.

If the place is lit with discharge lighting (very likely), that won't work. The color balance is constantly changing and this problem is magnified with short shutter speeds. It's like trying to white balance sodium vapor street lights.

Light in these places is just plain ugly. It's amazing how much better the photos look compared to the actual light.
