The Indianapolis Colts announced that they will be hosting an Open House at Lucas Oil Stadium from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13. The announcement comes on the heels of the Colts employing a marketing firm to attempt to sell the remaining season tickets available for the 2012 season.
The Colts have put together a family friendly schedule that includes some interactive "NFL Play 60" events for kids in attendance as well as an opportunity for photographs and a reserved space on the field for fans to play football. Admission to the event is free. For the entire schedule, visit the Colts team site.
The Colts will also be selling season tickets at the event, with fans having the opportunity to scope out the site lines from their seats. Of course the main allure for fans, even those not in the market for tickets, will be an open mini-camp practice. This represents the first opportunity for fans to get a look at the "new era" Colts and their staff.
The Colts have about 3,000 season tickets left for 2012, the first time they've been available to new customers since 2003. Pete Ward, the Colts Chief Operating Officer, said that the decline in season ticket sales was anticipated because of last year's 2-14 season and the departure of Peyton Manning and so many other fan favorites.
Indianapolis has sold out 79 consecutive home games, dating back to a 2004 contest with the Jacksonville Jaguars.Tags: Football, Indianapolis, Indianapolis Colts, NFL
