The Indianapolis Colts announced on Friday that Training Camp this season will be held at the team's Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center in Indianapolis.  After spending the last seven years preparing for the season in Anderson, the Colts will stay home for the first time since the franchise moved from Baltimore in 1984. 

"Anderson University and the people of Anderson have been incredibly gracious and enthusiastic hosts,” said Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay in a release. "The dynamics of NFL training camps have changed through the years, and more teams are staying at home. Last summer, with weather being a factor, we practiced only 11 times in Anderson. While our camp plans beyond 2017 are uncertain, staying home this summer should help us with future determinations.”

The Colts join a growing number of NFL teams choosing to stay home for camp instead of venturing away from its comfort zone. Last year, 19 of 32 franchises elected to keep preseason preparations at their own facilities.
