Colts-Rams game is sold out

Andrew Luck AP

The preseason debut of Andrew Luck will be televised.

The Colts announced via statement Wednesday (and Jim Irsay announced via Twitter) that tickets for their Sunday game against the Rams have sold out and that it will be televised locally as a result. Irsay had previously issued a “100% guarantee” that both home preseason games would sell out, so today’s news means that he’s halfway to making good on that promise.

There were reports last week of slow ticket sales for the Colts’ slate with 1,600 season tickets reportedly available. Single game tickets went on sale this week and there’s been no further update on how the sales have been going.

It won’t hurt ticket sales if people tune in on Sunday and see an encouraging performance from Luck and some of the other new faces that make up the majority of their roster. While you can’t make much of a determination about how good a player will be in his first preseason game, you can get excited enough to shell out money to see him play at some point during the season.

    It’s a 4 hour drive from St Louis so I’m guessing there will be at least 13 Rams fans in attendance.

    Figures… its the best chance for either teams fans to see a win this season.

    It’s the only time either team will be in first place.

    just allow ravenator to trash the steelers some more with nonsense….that always seems to be allowed.

    Why?

    I’m hoping to see Luck play Oct.7th. The day the Packers D gets about 2-3 sacks & at least as many INTs. Final score 42-17

    Irsay bought the tix up to try to get the Indy community excited. As of now, the Indy community is not at all excited about the Colts.

    Yes, I live in Indy. All of my neighbors who had season tix, did not renew.

    Imagine that…only one year removed from Manning.

    The only reason Jim Irsay can “guarantee” the second home preseason game sell out is because the Colts are packaging the regular season Packers home date with the final preseason game.

    Both the Colts and Rams fans are eagerly anticipating who will get the 1st pick in the 2013 draft.

    I’m so excited to see Andrew Luck take over as QB of the Indianapolis Colts

    *Yawn*
