INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (October 16,2015)- All eyes are on the Colts this week as the team prepares to take on the Patriots.
The highly-anticipated match-up isn’t until Sunday, but the excitement is already building inside Lucas Oil Stadium.
ESPN’s Mike & Mike Show aired live from inside the stadium for four hours Friday morning.
Hundreds of Colts fans arrived around 5 a.m. to secure a seat.
This is the first time since 2010 that the popular hosts made a trip to Indianapolis to cover the Colts.
Team officials said it was a great opportunity to get fans excited about Sunday night’s game.
“Having prime time football in Indianapolis is always so exciting for our fans, for Indianapolis, for the organization because it does shine the spotlight on our city, our state and the entire community,” said Stephanie Pemberton, senior director of marketing for the team.
“Touchdown Town” in front of the stadium will now open up at 4:30 Sunday evening to accommodate the large number of fans expected to be downtown for the game.
