Anderson optimistic about Colts camp

July 14, 2011

Despite the NFL lockout, the city of Anderson still anticipates the arrival of the Indianapolis Colts later this month for the start of training camp. City officials say they are optimistic the NFL will reach a contract with players in time to hold the camp, which took place in Anderson last year for the first time in more than a decade. The 18-day camp generated more than $6 million in visitor spending a year ago, Anderson Mayor Kris Ockomon said, and the city expects that number to rise this year. Camp is scheduled for July 31.
