It goes without saying that, with the team now firmly established as Indy Eleven, the “Name the Team” advisory poll is now closed. However, the club would like to thank the Andy Mohr Automotive Group for sponsoring the poll and the more than 6,000 people that let their passion about Indianapolis’ NASL team be known.
Indy Eleven would like to recognize Logan Wangsgard, founder of the Boston Cambridge Somerville Eleven soccer club, who was the lone person to suggest the Indy Eleven identity among the thousands of respondents. Despite Wangsgard’s submission, the true inspiration for the moniker fittingly came from a source within the Circle City.
“Indiana War Memorial Collection Manager Donna Schmink first brought the 11th Regiment to our attention.” explained Indy Eleven President Peter Wilt. “It was her passion for and knowledge of the colorful 11th Zouave Regiment that led to the team’s naming.”
There you have it!
