The Indianapolis Business Journal reports that Indy Pro Soccer “is on the verge of nailing down deposits for 2,500 season tickets.”
More than 2,000 deposits have been made and a deal with a youth soccer league for another 500 should close within 10 days, team officials say.
That would hit the season ticket goal of the unnamed North American Soccer League franchise almost 14 months before the team takes the field.
And it looks like Indianapolis will be among the league’s leaders in attendance. In 2012, average NASL attendance was 3,810. Only two teams, San Antonio and Atlanta, averaged more than 4,500 fans per game.
“We’re blowing our expectations out of the water,” said Peter Wilt, the franchise president. “We haven’t even started our first phase of aggressive outreach.”
