Colts looking to sell tickets

Mike Florio notes that the Colts are ramping up efforts to close the gap on season ticket sales:

Don Muret of SportsBusiness Journalexplains that the Colts have hired a local firm to help sell tickets after a seven-percent drop in season-ticket renewals.  Currently, the team has 3,000 season tickets to sell, prompting the organization for the first time in a decade to hire interns, who will target customers that previously bought single-game tickets.  The interns also make a second pass through a waiting list that apparently is made up of more than a few folks who are willing to wait even longer.

Of course, selling 3,000 tickets isn’t going to be tough even if they don’t go as season tickets. Blackouts in Indianapolis would really shock me. Once the team shows a few signs of life (and they will) I’d expect the crowds to grow.

UPDATE: Jim Irsay has responded (via Twitter of course):

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
