Team commits to 10 years at the city's sports complex.

The Indianapolis Colts announced today a 10-year deal to hold training camp at Westfield's Grand Park Sports Campus.

The Colts will start training there next summer.

“Holding training camp at Grand Park will give our team a chance to practice at a top-notch facility in addition to giving us the chance to connect with our fans as we prepare for the season,” Colts general manager Chris Ballard said in a release. “The venue is located in ideal proximity to our fan base and we feel this is an advantageous move for the Indianapolis Colts.

Westfield is located in Hamilton County, just north of Carmel.

“When Grand Park opened three years ago it was meant to be the gem of youth sports,” Westfield Mayor Andy Cook said in a release. “This partnership to be the official home of the Indianapolis Colts training camp goes well beyond youth sports. To have an NFL team committed to Grand Park for a decade proves that our facility is not only a premiere venue for youth sports, but also for professional athletes.”

Grand Park is a 400-acre campus with 26 baseball and softball diamonds and 31 multipurpose fields for soccer, football, and lacrosse. The training camp will include a 72,000 square feet Colts City for fans.

The Colts have trained in Anderson and Terre Haute in the past, but held camp at their own practice facility this year.
