1 month until Opening Day!
That’s right, there’s exactly one month until our April 12th season opener against Carolina. We trust you have your tickets by now… After flying under the radar for much of the past two weeks, there is much to catch up on:
Although we ultimately came up a bit short in our bid for the new stadium in the last legislative session, we were able to get a peek at the current renovations that are occurring at Carroll Stadium for the upcoming season, and there is much to be excited about! With the additional stands on the East and West Ends, as well as the Premier Suites to the North, the stage will be set for the best atmosphere in the league, hands down. The way the field is positioned encourages an intimate setting, and there truly doesn’t seem to be a bad seat in the house! Check out some of the pics we snapped after training earlier this week. You know, when it was warm.
In between a productive friendly with Columbus and a closely contested intersquad scrimmage, our team took to the Universal Studios/ CityWalk boardwalk for an evening off.
True to Hoosier form, much of the team ventured to NBA City to showcase our sharpshooting skills both outside in the three-point shootout and inside in the arcade. The three-point shootout saw Profi Wey matchup against Teflon Don, while inside was an arcade battle of Greater Indianapolis pitting Estridge of Brownsburg against Baba from Pike and Sprenkel from Zionsville. Who do you think won each bout? Check it out below!
As mentioned earlier, we took advantage of the warmer weather this past Monday and Tuesday and ventured outside for our first outdoor sessions in Indy. We did so at Carroll Stadium to get a feel for the pitch as well as the stadium as it takes shape. Today we were back inside after the weather flipped but we are hoping to be back outdoors soon.
Yesterday, our team announced the signings of midfielder Corby Moore and forward Ben Spencer. We look forward to having them bring their talents to Naptown. Corby joins us from England while Ben, an American, will be coming from his current post in Norway. Safe travels to both!
