The Colts would like to encourage all fans to arrive at Meijer Blue Thursday early and find a spot in line to win a pair of tickets. Fans should see a Meijer representative for location of "game" line. There will be only one official line for tickets at each Meijer Blue Thursday. The line to participate in the "game" for the free ticket opportunity will be administered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fans in line will be allowed one attempt at the ticket "game"; however, non-winning fans may get back in line for additional attempts. If someone wins tickets, they will not be permitted to win an additional pair. Family members attending the Blue Thursday together may win up to one pair of tickets per person. Once all 24 pairs of tickets are given away, the line will be cut off. Blue Thursday will take place rain or shine. All Colts Blue Thursday times are local.
