While the Colts began in 1953, the team wasn't originally based in Indianapolis. They were initially based in Baltimore and played out of Baltimore's Memorial Stadium until 1983. After playing for three decades and winning one Super Bowl while in Maryland, the Colts moved to Indy. The Colts performed respectably in Indianapolis at first, but their luck didn't really turn around until they selected legendary quarterback Peyton Manning in the 1998 NFL draft. Under Manning's leadership (and due in part to several other excellent draft picks over the next few years), the Colts steadily improved. It was during this period that the Colts and the Patriots developed a rivalry, especially between Manning and fellow QB Tom Brady. With Manning as their quarterback, the Colts won the 2006 Super Bowl — their second Super Bowl win and first in Indy. The Colts now compete in the AFC South division under the leadership of Head Coach Frank Reich and quarterback Jacoby Brissett. The team has some very devoted fans. Colts fans were ranked 12th in the annual NFL Fandom report, which quantifies fan engagement across a variety of platforms.

Where are Colts games held?
The Colts home stadium is Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. This stadium became the new home of the Colts in 2008 after the team spent 24 years playing in the RCA Dome (now called the Hoosier Dome). This large, new stadium can seat an impressive 70,000 people and has an area of about 170,000 square meters. When you buy home game tickets, this is the stadium the games will be played in.
What conference do the Colts play in?
The Colts are members of AFC South, the southern division of the American Football Conference. Since joining the AFC South in 2002, Indianapolis has finished first in the division nine times.
Who are the team's major rivals?
The Colts have a long-standing rivalry with the New England Patriots. While this rivalry was intensified early on by a personal rivalry between Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, the rivalry between the two teams continues today. Another major rival of the Colts is the Houston Texans. The two teams proved to be fairly evenly matched, as the Texans had never defeated the Colts in Indianapolis until 2015. In addition, the fact that former Colts star quarterback Andrew Luck was a Houston native further drew the ire of the Texans.
What are some of the Colts' most notable seasons?
Before the Super Bowl era, the Baltimore Colts won back-to-back NFL championships in 1958 and 1959. The team played in Super Bowl III in 1968 but were defeated by the New York Jets in what has been called one of the biggest upsets in NFL history. The Colts' most notable season in Indianapolis came in 2006, when they finished 12-4 and won Super Bowl XLI 29-17 over the Chicago Bears.
How much are Colts tickets?
Just as is the case with many NFL teams, tickets to Colts games vary significantly when it comes to price. Of course, higher-cost seats often come with extras like food and drinks. Generally speaking, postseason tickets will be more expensive than tickets for regular-season games.
