Fans snap up Colts tickets
Indianapolis Colts single game tickets are on sale Monday, and they're going fast.
Fans lined up outside Lucas Oil Stadium in the hopes of grabbing the hottest ticket in town. The single game tickets went on sale at 10:00 am and Colts fans lined up as early as an hour and a half or two hours early to try to get mainly tickets to the Oct. 20th Colts vs. Broncos game, but that game was sold out even before the ticket windows opened.
Fans want to see Peyton Manning play here one more time. But even if they didn't get a ticket to the Denver game, fans opted for other games. Many just want to see the team play in person.
It was a much different picture from last year when about 13 percent of season ticket holders turned in their tickets. It was the first season Manning was off the roster. The team was in transition and no one knew what Andrew Luck would bring. But after a stellar rookie season, fans are eager for more.
"We picked up a lot of new people. It's looking good. The expectations are a little higher. I think we're going to see some good football," said Adam Eaton, Colts fan.
The Colts organization has to be happy to see fans lining up again to get tickets. Even though they're paying a price, they don't care where they sit as long as they are in the seats when the season starts.
