Three Night Practices Highlight Training Camp Schedule
The Indianapolis Colts begin their 58th NFL season by opening training camp on Sunday, August 1 at Anderson University in Anderson, Ind. Here is a look at information to help you get the most enjoyment possible out of your experience at the Colts' training camp.
- Training Camp is in Anderson. So don't fall into an old habit and head to Terre Haute. The Colts are excited to return to their first training camp home in Indiana, Anderson. The Colts conducted training camp at Anderson University from 1984-98 before moving to Rose-Hulman from 1999-2009.
- Come One, Come All. Everyone is welcome at the Colts' 24 scheduled practices in Anderson and the team charges no admission to attend practice. Anderson University will charge $10 for parking. The stands to watch practice will fill up fast, so arrive early to guarantee yourself a seat to watch the team practice.
Some practices of note:
Monday, August 2 – The first practice of training camp will begin at 8:30 a.m.
Wednesday, August 4 – The team's first night practice at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, August 7 – The team will conduct a mock "Blue-White" game in shorts at 10:30 a.m.
Wednesday, August 11 – The team will have a night practice at 7:30 p.m.

*- All practice times and scheduled activities at practice are subject to change
- There will be an Autograph Tent Every Day. There will be a handful of Colts players in an autograph tent every day after the first practice. The autograph session will last for 30 minutes and will operate on a first come, first served basis. While staff will keep the line moving as quickly as possible, there is no guarantee that every fan in line will get an autograph. The players are on a tight schedule and at the end of the 30 minutes they will have to leave. At some point in training camp, every player will be in the tent. But the club will not announce what players are going on what days.
- Colts City has fun for all ages. There is more than just practice to see at Colts training camp. Colts City will be set up near the team's practice fields and will have many attractions - interactive inflatables, giveaways, a Colts traveling museum, a rock climbing wall, and the team's popular mascot, Blue, along with Colts cheerleaders will be there to greet all fans. Colts City will be open on seven of the practice days: August 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11 and 17. There is no charge to enter Colts City.
Keep these things in mind as you come to Anderson as the Colts prepare for another exciting season.
