Pro Soccer Team Officials Unveil Name

4/25/2013

Indy's new pro soccer team now has a name: Indy Eleven.

Team President and GM Peter Wilt says the name refers to the 11 players on a soccer team, but also pays homage to the 11th Indiana Volunteer Regiment that fought in the Civil War.  The team colors are red, white and blue.

Wilt says the team has sold over 3,000 season tickets so far. He says they now move on to find a head coach.

The team begins play in the NASL next year.
