INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – The Indianapolis Colts are hosting their first public practice at Lucas Oil Stadium a day after the players reported to training camp at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center.
The roof and window were open during Sunday’s practice. But this is one of just two Colts practices that will be open to fans during training camp.
“That was the disappointing part,” said Josh Knecht, who came to watch Sunday. “I think when all of us heard it was coming back from Anderson we were expecting to be up at Farm Bureau quite a bit and just having two open practices, one today and then one at a high school isn’t quite enough, so gotta open it up a little more than that.”
“As a fan, you’ve got to be kind of disappointed because you are only going to get to see them a couple times,” said Don Parrish. “I think these practices are more for the fans to get involved with the players, get autographs, mingle with them. And I think for Colts fans you only get two cracks at it .”
“It’s probably a little sad,” said Gavin Morgan. “I know kids would like to get out here and see this so just the opportunity of more chances to see them, it’s a little sad that it’s only down to two.”
The second open practice will be held at Warren Central High School on Saturday, August 5.
The non-ticketed event will be free and open to the public.
