There is no better place for football in Indianapolis than Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the legendary Indianapolis Colts. This championship-winning team has many thousands of loyal fans, so it is important to book Lucas Oil Stadium parking ahead of time with ParkWhiz. The current team traces their history back to the Baltimore Colts, which had predecessors in previous decades, but formed as an NFL expansion team in 1953 under owner Carroll Rosenbloom. While in Baltimore, they were based at Memorial Stadium from 1953 to 1983, and won three championships in 1958, 1959 and 1968 prior to the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The Colts were among a handful of NFL teams that joined the new American Football Conference and soon after won Super Bowl V. Robert Irsay became owner in 1972, and in 1983 the team relocated to Indianapolis, moving into the RCA Dome, where they stayed until 2007. Jim Irsay took over for his father as team owner in 1997, helping to lead the team to winning Super Bowl XLI in 2006. In 2008, the team moved a few blocks south to the new Lucas Oil Stadium, where they continue to be based. Over the years, the team has also accomplished seven conference championships and 16 division championships and an impressive 29 playoff appearances. This venerable team can attract many fans to fill the stadium, so it’s a smart idea to book Lucas Oil Stadium parking ahead of time with ParkWhiz.
