INDIANAPOLIS – The Colts are “back home again” in Anderson this summer as the team will hold its 2013 training camp at Anderson University.
This will mark the fourth straight year the Colts will hold their camp at the university which was the original site when moving to Indiana.
The Colts trained at Anderson University from 1984-98 before relocating to the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in 1999.
Colts Owner and CEO Jim Irsay announced the news today, citing, “GREAT Colts fans (and) beautiful campus.”
A tradition for the Colts is to hold training camp in-state so fans may take the opportunity to watch the team form as it prepares for the upcoming season.
Fans attending this year’s camp will see a Colts unit coming off an 11-5 season that resulted in a playoff berth.
The record was a nine-game improvement from the previous year, one of the best one-season turnarounds in NFL history. The Colts did not lose consecutive games all season.
Record crowds have attended training camps in recent years.
While an opening date for the camp is not identified yet, the camp typically opens around the end of July.
Specific dates and a practice schedule will be announced in the near future on www.colts.com.
