Indianapolis, Ind. -- The Indianapolis Colts have announced that the team will return to Anderson University for its 2012 training camp. Players will report on July 28 with the first day of practice starting on July 29.
“Our staff made several visits to the Anderson campus and we were extremely pleased with its amenities and layout,” said General Manager Ryan Grigson. “The university staff is tremendous and we trust their experience having conducted past camps. We feel Anderson is in a great location to connect with Colts fans around the state of Indiana, which is one of our biggest priorities.”
Indianapolis originally spent training camp at Anderson from its inaugural season in 1984 to 1998. Following 11 years at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana, the Colts returned to Anderson in 2010.
Anderson is a private Christian university of 2,600 undergraduate and graduate students in central Indiana. The Colts have witnessed a strong following of fans attending camp in Anderson and last year alone, attendance for the team’s three night practices reached 28,000. In 2010, training camp drew approximately 85,000 fans over an 18-day period.
