    I'd buy a jersey with that crest on it.

    The crest is great.

    Is there already a soccer team called the Victory?

    Apparently IMS had an issue with them being Racing Indianapolis FC otherwise it would have been the unanimous name, much in the same way that the rumor has always been that the story that Pace Horses as the background to the Pacers name was just a cover to not draw IMS's attention. Dumb.

    Good, because Racing Indanapolis FC is a terrible name.

    I actually just found out about all of this today, and watched the live stream of the first coach announcement. I'm actually very excited to have another sport here. Will probably be my 2nd favorite team to watch live in the city. Pacers being number 1.

    I saw on the Brickyard Battalion's Facebook pace that over 4,000 season tickets have sold. That season ticket base alone would put Indy's attendance average as the 3rd highest in the NASL. That's pretty impressive. I would absolutely love to have season tickets if I lived closer to Indy, but just can't do it being 2 hours away.

    Come on people, with a name like "Eleven" this clip can be played on the screen before the team runs on the field.

    Probably cause I feel like the only person in Indy that doesn't want everything to so blatantly relate back to the Indy 500. Racing isn't the only thing that happens in this state and city.

    They just announced that they want to expand MLS by 4 teams by the end of the decade. Not sure if it's going to be possible, but here's to hoping we can grab one of those spots. Hopefully we can show that we are a good market for them to expand to (which we are) and there would be a great benefit to coming to a great sports city

    $$$$ Either our owners would need to become wealthier or they would need to sell to someone who is. MLS upped their requirements for owner's wealth last year I think? And conveniently right around then Eleven ownership announced how they weren't interested in the MLS because it restricted what you could pay for players, but yeah you can probably connect the dots yourself.

    That sucks. I would love for them to become an MLS team. Not sure Indy will support a minor league team besides the Indians.

    I have a feeling FL is going to get 2 of those spots. I know Beckham is trying to start a team in Miami and in all likelihood there's no way that doesn't become an MLS team. Orlando is strongly pushing for one too.

    There's no doubt in my mind Indy would get one of those spots if we really wanted it and had an owner with the goods to back it.

    MLS has been a central ownership system for years, but is slowly transitioning to more distinct individual owners, but as they do this they want owners who can definitely foot the bill.

    And the owner we have now doesn't have the goods to back it?

    Yeah that's great that we got over 40K for the game. Shows we at least have a fan base here

    Saying only over 40k is shorting it a little, we were less than 1,000 away from 50k. Although, yes it defiantly showed there is a market to be had. Really though the first season or two I would expect strong support, the question is sustaining good attendance beyond that point.

    Wow nearly 50k in Indy for Inter-Milan and Chelsea? That's really impressive. I know those are great teams but that game was only an exhibition right?

    No, this was an International Champions Cup game. It is a tournament of the best teams in the world, and whoever won the MLS this year.

    Yes pretty much exhibition, they play the young players first and the older ones don't play much.
