Demand for Colts tickets
The Indianapolis Colts take on their AFC South rival, the Tennessee Titans, Sunday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium. Kickoff for that game is at one o'clock. There's a big change in the team this year with a new quarterback, new players, and new coaches. It's a combination that's working for the Colts and their fans.
Don Higgs is a big fan of the Colts: "I think they can win the Super Bowl right now this year."
Higgs says he's not a "bandwagon" fan. He and his wife have had season ticket from the very beginning.
Colts fans will remember the first game of the NFL season. The Colts and their new quarterback, Andrew Luck, opened the season in Chicago with a loss. The new era for the Colts didn't look so bright. That same day, we challenged Colts fans to grade the teams performance and the grades were not always passing after that Week 1 game.
"I really didn't have a lot of hopes for them in the first year of the rejuvenation."
Again, it was the same sentiment a lot of Colts fans shared during the pre-season and through most of September. Remember when team management were concerned that home games would not sell out? That's because if there wasn't a sell-out, the Colts games would not be broadcast on local TV. The city, the team and the fans were all braced for a tough year.
Circle City Tickets, like a lot of people, were expecting Colts ticket sales to be flat this year. There are two homes games remaining in the season, and now, fans are starting to show up with money in hand looking for tickets.
Angelo Peduto works for Circle City Tickets: "A lot of the tickets are still going at face value or a bit over face value, but not like it was say three years ago."
Tickets are available for both of the last two Colts homes games.
However, the last game when head coach Chuck Pagano is expected back on the field , could be a tough ticket to get.
