Though the news comes as no surprise, the Colts officially announced today that they will be returning to Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana for training camp this summer. No date has been announced for the start of camp or for the practice times of camp, as that will be announced later, but with a later start date for the NFL season this year it's expected to be slightly later than normal. Once again, practices will be open to the public for free.
This will be the sixth straight year in Anderson for training camp for the Colts. The University was the initial location for Colts training camp when the franchise moved to Indianapolis from Baltimore in 1984, and camp stayed at Anderson through 1998 - Peyton Manning's rookie year. They then held camp at Rose-Hulman in Terre Haute from 1999-2009 before moving back to Anderson in 2010 - Peyton Manning's final playing season with the Colts. Since then, they've continued to return to the University for training camp each summer.
Once again, Stampede Blue will be covering all things training camp live on site from Anderson University, so be sure to stay tuned to the site throughout the offseason as we cover the moves the team makes and then also when we get to training camp.
