The Indianapolis Colts are planning an expansion of the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center. Chief Operating Officer Pete Ward tells Inside INdiana Business the project will include enhancements to player-related areas and a new community pavilion to replace the current one. The price of the project is not being disclosed, but Ward says it will include additional space and improvements to locker rooms, equipment, strength and conditioning space and medical facilities. A new artificial turf practice field is also part of the improvement package.
In 2015, the team launched a smaller-scale expansion of the training complex and team headquarters on the city’s northwest side in 2015, adding to office, lobby and swimming areas.
Ward expects player-related portions of the work to be complete in August 2018 and the new community pavilion could open during the 2018 season.
Our partners at WTHR-TV report a public hearing on the proposal is set for October 26th at 7 p.m. at the Pike Township Government Center.
