INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Colts are about to begin their 30th season in Indianapolis, and the team's 6th at Lucas Oil Stadium.
You know about all the changes on the field, but there is plenty of news for fans off the field. Football is back -- that's the new sign you'll see painted on the field of Lucas Oil Stadium Sunday.
Larry Hall, Vice President of Ticket Operations and Guest Services for the Indianapolis Colts says the 62,000 plus seats will be filled. The game is sold out, and this year, it wasn't a tough sell like it was early last year.
"Well there's no question winning helps. But at the same time, I think we try to be a part of the huge fabric of the community," says Hall.
The team continues to try and find new ways to sell fans on the experience inside the stadium Including adding craft beers to the concession menu and upgrading the Colts phone app.
"We've got a new Red zone feature. There are six different ways they can watch a replay," says Hall.
Also new is a commerative 30th anniversary sign that the first 30,000 fans inside will get on game day. A sign that folds to become a fan, ready to cool you down when the action on the field heats up.
Don't have a ticket? Don't worry. South Street in front of the stadium will be transformed into the American Family Insurance Touchdown Town.
"A lot of interactives. Some food trucks. We're going to have music. It's going to be a great time," says Hall.
Georgia Street will host a first of it's kind kickoff concert, with everyone invited.
"Friday night we're having a special kickoff concert with the Gin Blossoms down here on Georgia Street. We're excited about that. And the public's invited. It's a free concert and everyone should come down and have a good time," says Hall.
One other important note -- no purses or backpacks will be allowed inside Lucas Oil Stadium this season. It's the new NFL rules.
Everyone with a ticket can have a small clutch purse and a clear one gallon bag, and that's it.
