Report: Colts Returning to Anderson

The Colts have held their annual training camp at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute for the last 10 summers, but it appears the team is making a change in location this summer.

According to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, citing a source, the move is official and the team will announce the change tonight, with a press conference planned for Thursday in Anderson.

Anderson University — then Anderson College — was the site of the Indianapolis Colts' original training camp from 1984 until 1998. The team moved to Rose-Hulman in 1999, where they remained until last summer.

Anderson has recently constructed a $17.4 million facility, the Kardatzke Wellness Center, as well as upgrading other facilities to help lure the Colts to return.

It will be a bit of a closer commute for the team, as Anderson is 53 miles from the team's headquarters, whereas Rose-Hulman was 67 miles. Anderson is 46 miles northeast of downtown Indianapolis.

The Colts report to training camp Aug. 1.
