Indy Eleven home opener this weekend

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) -The Indy Eleven plays in its home opener at the Michael A. Carroll Stadium on IUPUI’s campus Saturday night.

The team is now in its third season.

Indy Eleven takes on the Ottawa Fury FC at 7:30 p.m.

Thursday, they tweeted there are less than a thousand tickets left. Tickets start at $11.00 each.

The team named a new coach for this season and a new president earlier this year.

The new president is Jeff Belskus who spent decades with the Hulman Company and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Belskus told the North American Soccer League he will continue to work toward finding the team a permanent home.

Last year the Indy Eleven asked state lawmakers to approve funding to build a new stadium, then amended the request to ask for funding to renovate the current Carroll Stadium.

Last April, then-president Peter Wilt told us they ran out of time to find a compromise between the house and the senate.

Belskus said he will continue the work.
